Most of the present channels are filled with the programs that make no sense even to the adults. I think Kochu TV will be better than all those channels. At least, we can watch it peacefully. Waiting for Kochu TV. To be frank, it is good to see that children also get good consideration from the side of media. May Kochu TV be able to entertain and enlighten the children.
