Turner Broadcasting in India

Turner International India operates kids entertainment channels Cartoon Network, POGO, Tonami India and English entertainment channels HBO and WB Channel. In 2012, Turner shut down general entertainment channel Imagine TV as the channel failed to grow and perform as per expectations, and was unable to achieve the ratings consistency needed to sustain the business and support continued investment. Turner had acquired a 92% stake in Imagine  for a sum of $126.5 million from NDTV, which had initially started the channel.

Turner Broadcasting System had a restructuring in 2011 and had appointed Monica Tata as Turner International India’s VP & GM Networks. Later in 2012, Tata quit the company and went on to join HBO India as Managing Director.
