Rishtey is operated by Viacom 18, a joint venture between Channel 5 owner Viacom and Mumbai's Network 18 group and provides a range of free-to-air entertainment programming in Hindi.
Viewers require a device that is certified to work with Freeview HD, Freeview Play, EE TV or YouView to watch the channel (more details below).
The channel launched in the UK in 2012 and is also available on Sky, Virgin Media, Freesat and the TVPlayer streaming service.
Rishtey has joined the same group of channels - or multiplex - as BBC Four HD, Al Jazeera English HD and 4seven HD, and is available to around 70% of UK households.
Until now, Hindi language services on Freeview have been constrained to internet delivered hybrid services, such as TVPlayer on channel 241 or via short-lived transmissions in the Greater Manchester area.
