Tata Sky has announced the launch of the first ever scholarship for kids that can be availed through television. Author and motivational speaker Chetan Bhagat has been roped in to promote the Tata Sky Scholarship Quiz.

For the first time ever television will be the medium of participation for children to win the edutainment-based Tata Sky Scholarship. Tata Sky subscribers will be able to participate in the quiz on 15 August 2014 by simply answering questions on television, with a click of their Tata Sky remote control, from the comfort of their homes.

Vikram Mehra, Chief Commercial Officer at Tata Sky explained, “The varied range of learning channels and interactive services for children on Tata Sky has been an apt medium to deliver edutainment and knowledge based content, as kids always grasp more from what they see and hear. Now with the Tata Sky Scholarship Quiz we look forward to quizzing and rewarding children across the country, for their vast exposure to educative content.”
