During the time of Doordarshan, families used to unite together in the living room to watch the daily samaachar or the evening shows which catered to all audiences alike with its evolving number of TV shows. From regional, comedy, general entertainment to news and sports, people never used to miss a single show on Doordarshan. Over time, it expanded to other countries and is free of cost on cable and satellite TV for smooth and universal accessibility in today's time.
Doordarshan was founded by the Government of India, owned by the Broadcasting Ministry of India and one of Prasar Bharati's two divisions. Doordarshan, which also broadcasts on digital terrestrial transmitters, provides television, radio, online and mobile service throughout metropolitan and regional India and overseas through the Indian Network and Radio India.
