Tamil language Indian cable televisionstation. It is the flagship channel of the Chennai-based Rs 16000-crore Sun Network. It was the first fully privately owned Television channel in India when it emerged in 1993. It is most viewed tamil TV channel in the world. It remained privately held until 2006 when it was listed on the two main Indian stock exchanges - the National Stock Exchange of Indiaand Bombay Stock Exchange.
