The Live TV service is 100% free and is aimed at bridging the east and the west. There are “desi” channels for folks far away from home to connect with, and international channels for folks back home to enjoy western broadcasts for free.
Streaming speeds are totally dependent on the end users bandwidth speed. Also some channels are not 24/7 and may not be available all the time as the live stream is based on the actual broadcast time.
There are about 35 live TV channels available on Konkan.tv. I hope the site improves on the categorization of the channels, this would make it easier to access content of interest.
I did try to access CNBC TV 18 from my workplace and it did work well with the limited bandwidth.
