Overall Winner: YuppTv [YuppTv 6– Lebara 4]


In today’s multi-cultural and multi-lingual society, users are interested in experimental and abstract Television rather than the conventional list of channels that talk about their very own. Even in the United Kingdom, Non-regional Indians tend to watch and seek channels that represent India as a whole rather than just a particular Industry. Lebara play’s specifically targeted audience incorporation, weighing all the pros and cons, ends up to be a major setback as YuppTv satisfies Tamil viewers in the UK as much, or in most cases discussed in this review better than Lebara play.
