Sun TV, the market leader among Tamil TV Channels is on a roll. After snapping Sivakarthikeyan-Ponram film and Nayanthara’s Aramm, they have also bought the satellite rights of Prabhu Deva-Hansika's Gulebagavali, Selvaraghavan-Santhanam's Mannavan Vanthanadi and Sibiraj's Sathya.
Sources say that after launching their digital streaming platform Sun Nxt, the TV network is said to be buying both digital and Satellite rights together as a package and thus giving tough competition to other players including Amazon Prime and Netflix.
Tamil Film Producers are also super happy with Sun TV getting active in procuring satellite rights, which is indeed a big boost for them considering various practical difficulties including GST and piracy.
We also hear that Sun TV is planning to buy Thalapathy's Mersal and Thala Ajith’s Vivegam but things are yet to be confirmed.
