First marine-based TV to be launched in May

Marine enthusiasts world over will soon be gifted a 24-hour free-to-air satellite television channel and a website devoted to their needs.
MarineBiz TV, an initiative of Dubai-based marine design firm Aries, would beam from May 1 and accessible on DTH and worldwide networks with a web launch slated for March 1.
It will cover Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia in phase-I and its footprint will extend to the rest of the world by August.
"MarineBiz TV will become the single point of contact for all marine activities and information and also aims to propagate and help create a safe Maritime World," Aries group CEO Sohan Roy said from Sharjah.
"We aim to provide a service that is relevant, entertaining, informative and responsive to needs and opinions of the marine community".
Sohan said with the web they aim to reach one-million decision makers in the area and the programmes will be interactive, with discussions, newsletters, on-line shopping facilities, and information on maritime events, and marine institutions.
