The idea was to tell stories beyond the ordinary and beyond the natural spaces of conventional conversations to turn them into community conversations that change how the world will see the Northeast region of India.

Or, for that matter, change how the world sees Nagaland, the home of HornbillTV — the state’s first satellite TV channel bringing to the state and the Northeast Region society-changing conversations and events from across the world.


HornbillTV’s inspiration does not skim run-of-the-mill news information. Rather, it works with the ordinary to create an extraordinary mosaic of both news information and informative news — From human interest stories to factsheets about the biggest stars on planet; from thought-provoking banter on burning social and governance issues from some of the most eminent community, youth, and government leaders; from hyperlocal news to regional collation, from national news to international news — all broadcast into home not only to delight, but to provoke the idea of worldview.

In other words, HornbillTV’s core mission is to connect to a worldview beyond Nagaland, beyond, Northeast India, and beyond India.


There are a number of TV channels across India in different languages serving myriad demographics. But for Nagaland state, a television channel that represented the region’s stories and worldview was lacking.

The promoters, Pure Entertainment Group, which is based in Nagaland, had consistently observed this lack. Building on this need, the group was inspired to engage the creation of Hornbill TV, conceptualized in 2019, which subsequently went on air in January 2021. The promoters of Hornbill Tv have no hidden agenda. The sole purpose of starting the First and only satellite Tv channel based out of Nagaland is to give a voice to the people and to proudly put Nagaland in the elite Satellite Tv club of the world.

In such a short time, in terms of news source capital and production capability, HornbillTV is now leading from the front.
