The Winners so far

Two online polls were held in January and February 2001 for four categories at http://www.indiantelevision.com. At the end of it all, the winners were selected.

TV CEO of the Year
Peter Mukerjea

For his stellar performance in motivating his team and taking Star Plus to the numero uno position in the cable and satellite television sweepstakes, Mukerjea won this poll hands down.
Peter Mukerjea spoke to indiantelevision.com soon after being declared the Indian Telly TV Executive for the Year 2000

TV Personality of The Year
Amitabh Bachchan

There were no doubts who would win this award. The Amitabh Bachchan persona and Kaun Banega Crorepati led the turnaround at the Star Plus. Kudos to Mr Bachchan.

TV Channel of the Year
DD Metro

DD Metro had been sinking until Channel Nine India got hold of the three hour block. The new programming was slick, the promotions were great, and DD Metro got a look like it never had before. It looked like a privately-run cable and satellite television channel. This winner surprised everyone as Star Plus was expected to walk away with the honours.

The MSO of the Year
Seven Star

This independent operator in Mumbai's northern suburb of Vile Parle-Juhu-Andheri can teach a lot of big players what a cable operation should be like. The cable TV network has an addressable system in place, it offers niche western channels to subscribers and also offers value-added services like Internet over cable which really work. No wonder it emerged victorious in the MSO of the year poll.
