Welcome to Mathuram TV. The purpose of this site is to give you all the
information we have on this new Tamil television service to Europe.
We are a group of Tamils, and very proud to be so. We firmly believe in our
Language and Culture. We have an unmistakable faith in our Tamil Community
spread around the globe, its resilience and its understanding of the need to
preserve our cultural identity. We also long for the freedom and emancipation of
our people back home in our beloved homeland and their right to live peacefully
and enjoy at least some of the joys of life that we take for granted.
On this background, we launch two distinct television channels to the fellow
Tamils in Europe. Mathuram TV will be an entertainment channel with a mix of the
popular culture and appeal to our younger generation. The second channel will be
launched soon and the details will be made available on Mathuram TV. This will
provide you with all the infotainment you miss at present.
We have made it a priority to carry comprehensive coverage of news and events
both in Tamil and English. Initially our efforts would be to get this right.
News from our homelands affecting our families back home will be a priority. We
are trying our very best to secure news reporters from these areas. However, we
are all aware of the risks and dangers the Press and TV Reporters face in Sri
Lanka. They don't have a chance! We will obtain as much news as possible from
international agencies and local reporters.
The channel will also carry educational programs and special programs geared to
improving the lives of the Expatriate Tamil community. We will focus on
informing you about the social and administrative structures in your adopted
countries; healthcare and what to expect with modern medicine; legal systems and
how to ask questions to ensure your rights are respected and you meet your
obligations. We want to engage, inform and and entertain you. We will also
broadcast cultural and religious events of the Tamil community in your
respective countries, especially where our children perform so that we encourage
them and engage them so that the Tamil way of life is preserved into the future.
We are confident that we will have an exciting Tamil television service very
soon and we appeal to all self respecting European Tamils to support us so that
we show the world our integrity, unity and self confidence.
Our VOIP telephone system was overwhelmed with the thousands and thousands of
phone calls received and shutdown. We apologise for this unfortunate problem,
however, we are also overjoyed with the interest and support that you have
expressed. We are making alternative arrangements for the phone system and the
new phone numbers are given below -
