VIJAY is one of the most popular entertainment channels in India broadcasting in Tamil. Programming on VIJAY is tailor-made to cater to the distinctive culture of Tamil Nadu.
Vijay TV, which was established as GEC TV by an entrepreneur in Chennai in the first half of 1995, was bought over by Vijay Mallya's UB Group in December the same year. Somewhere between then and November 1998, when The Unilazer group picked up the majority shareholding and IL&FS 25 per cent, the channel got renamed Vijay. Today, the UB group holds only a 7.5 per cent stake in the channel.
