Times Network has always kept pace with technology and last year, it built an eco-system that consolidates resources with a special focus on process and cost efficiencies year. The industry saw it launch new HD channels and move operations of its flagship news channel, Times Now, from Mumbai to Delhi. Strategising the conversion of this flagship English news channel from standard definition to high definition with no downtime was a major project for the company. The seamless launch of two beams was the most challenging, according to Iyer. The company also recovered from a major fire incident in December 2017, with the news channels getting back on air within three hours. Iyer quoted Robert Frost to summarise his achievements of the year gone by, “Miles to go before I sleep.”
