Abstract: This paper is an attempt to understand the anatomy of local cable channels in the context of
Assam. Urban centers have long been the centers of cultural dissemination, while the rural has
been consumers. Through the example of a local cable news channel and its functioning I try to
attempt at an understanding how they are the new nerve centers of an emerging class order which
establishes its identity by the content of its own. Barak Television Network is one such channel
that records everything from a wedding to a local cricket match to a puja pandal and in the
process stays relevant to its loyal subscribers. The economic structure of such an enterprise is not
on a firm footing but survival has become synonymous with these channels.
