    In order to start a TV channel some of the things that are needed are -

    1. Uplink and Downlink license.
    2. Yearly fee for broadcasting compliance
    3. Permission for the broadcasting on specific spectrum
    4. Leasing uplink and downlink on specific satellite
    5. Advertising compliance
    6. Content compliance

    You need compliance certificate and the yearly fee for each one of them. Also the cost for the leasing and the content needs to be considered. You have to also start a brand and get it registered as a company. After that you can get the necessary documentation, fees and the funds for the same.

    Based on the speculation being done online in some communities. 80 Crores is the starting funding for the setup and the satellite lease. If you choose to do the relaying through local cable then the cost goes very down. And it goes around 50-70 lakh setup. However content requires to be transmitted through the frequency for which you may need to fund and work on.

    You can rent cameras and take studio equipment for lease .which would approximately cost you around 5 lakh monthly for a basic setup.
    It would take around 1 lakh to register a media company for which you also get substantial benefits.
    Then you need an office and at least 5 computers of high end conformation and fittings to operate the channel. This would cost you a primary amount of 2 lakh / space rent *
    6 month advance equalling 12 lakh and first month rent plus one month security altogether 16 lakh) and for electronic equipment you need 7 lakh in hand including PC's routers and printing machinery
    After that if you want to air your programs you need 15-20 lakh per month for SD QUALITY, just like renting a server space to publish your things into world wide web.

    Thereafter, if u purchase the original software that would cost you 2-3 lakh / year.
    Totally it cost around 60 lakhs.
    However content requires to be transmitted through the frequency for which you may need to fund and work on.
    After that you can get the necessary documentation, fees and the funds for the same.
