About Kappa TV
It‘s more than a cuppa coffee that most youth hold in their hands while they lounge about in Café Coffee Days or BruCafes. Kappa TV - the youth focused music channel. It has chosen to be different from others of its ilk - it has a programming mix in English, Hindi, Malayalam and Tamil. And this, from a group which has its origins in Kerala where Malayalam and English are the main spoken languages as compared to other mainline youth channels. With pulsating music, riotous humour, film review and intimate interviews, all tightly-edited, it has ignited the imagination of the young crowd, within months of launch, thus validating our rationale. There also existed a need to provide content which the viewer could relate to without losing sleep over what was missed.

The content mix- mantra is to ensure that the entertainment needs of our target groups are met. The channel has six to seven hours of original non-fiction content in Malayalam and English on air daily. Among the music-based shows, the channel airs Music Mojo, a Malayalam me-too of MTV Unplugged and Coke Studio; Awesome Covers, a remix of songs of different languages; Mood Tapes, a show which captures the mood of the day and invites people across neighbourhoods to sing and compose songs; Bindaas Bollywood, which showcases Bollywood‘s best; and International Chart Busters

Kappa TV‘s non-fiction portfolio includes: I Personally, which focuses on celebrity interviews; Film Lounge, a film review and recommendation show;Creative Chef and Simply Naadan - cookery shows, Street Magic, a magic show and Candid Camera which features celeb photo shoots and style tips from fashion experts. "We have chefs from hotel chain giants like Vivanta by Taj , Crowne Plaza,Holiday Innu and Le Meridien for our show Creative Chef," informs Nair.
