DhiTV channel officially inaugurated
The first private television channel in the Maldives,
DhiTV, has been officially inaugurated.
The channel was inaugurated by President Gayoom at a

DhiTV was founded by local business mogul Mr. Champa Mohamed
Moosa, and top tier staff includes former TVM executive Ibrahim Khaleel, who is
a director along with Masood Ali and Hassan Maumoom.
Presently DhiTV is being broadcast via cable, but parent
company Broadcasting Maldives has already announced plans to move in to
satellite transmission in the future. The channel will host all general
