EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Image channel is a first private television channel which is fired up with programs that were focused on pop music, women, celebrity and fashion. But also it lacks in the women career and upliftments programs, women’s importance in soceity programs. Though image channel is very popular channel, it has some drawbacks so we want to introduce new channel focusing in welfare and upliftment of women because “when men is educated only he himself is educated but when women is educated whole family is educated.”
CONT… So we want to introduce new channel: Nari Tv: “tapai ki mitini” Our aim is to reach every women’s heart. We include shows which uplift women’s skills(cookery show, heath tips, yoga and exercises), entertainment(serials, music videos, films, fashions and style), acknowledge women’s succes in various field(women achievers in teaching, army, health, engineering, enterpreneurs, corpo rate, politics and many more), quiz shows, win prize shows and many more.
SITUATION ANALYSISMarket Summary Nepal Television (Nepali: ) is the oldest and most watched television channel in Nepal. Nepal Television was for many years the only television channel native to Nepal, but several others have begun operation in recent years. Other important TV channels in Nepal are NTV PLUS, which is owned by the Nepalese government. Private channels include Kantipur Television,Image Channel, Channel Nepal, Avenues TV and Sagarmatha Television.
CONT… To envision the trend set by multinational media giants and prepare a strategy to cope with its influence on national body polity. The establishment of real public service broadcasting is the only way to safeguard nationalism as well as the cultural identity. Otherwise, the generation to come will be completely swapped up by the flow of information as rendered by those multinational media giants
PEST ANALYSIS Political Economic Social Technology
MARKET DEMOGRAPHIC1. Geographic Nepal is landlocked by India on three sides and China (Tibet) to the north. Nepal is divided into three regions hilly, terai and himalayan regions. Hilly Region This region begins at the Mahabharat Range Southern slopes are nearly uninhabited, thus an effective buffer between languages and culture in the Terai and Hill regions. Northern slopes are gentler and moderately well populated.
• Cont… Terai Region The Terai or Madhesh region begins at the Indian border whose cultural is close to northern India with the people speaking Awadhi, Bhojpuri, Tharu, and Maithili along with Nepali. The Terai ends and the Hills begin at a higher range of foothills called the Mahabharat Range. Himalayan Region This region has an altitude ranging between 4,877 m to 8,848m. The regions culture and religion are closely linked to Tibet, and the traditional economy was (and sometimes still is) based on trans-border trade with its northern neighbour.
• Cont…2. Demographic The population of Nepal is estimated at 26,630,809 people in census of 2011, with a population growth rate of 1.596%.
