Co-founded by Arnab Goswami (former editor-in-chief of Times Now), the channel was launched on 6 May 2017 as a free-to-air channel. The venture was primarily funded, among others, by co-founder Rajeev Chandrasekhar (then an independent legislator from the National Democratic Alliance) through his company Asianet News; Goswami became the majority owner on 6 May 2019, after Chandrasekhar parted his stake.
Critical reception has been negative. The channel has been accused of practicing biased reporting in favor of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and propagating fake news. It has also been convicted of breaching Telecom Regulatory Authority of India and News Broadcasting Standards Authority rules, leading to censures and subject to a high-profile defamation case by Indian National Congress legislator Shashi Tharoor.
