DD Metro also known as DD 2 was Doordarshan's Hindi-language general entertainment channel. At the time, DD Metro was on air, the channel was kept as a terrestrial channel, instead of exclusive satellite channel. However, it was available on many of the cable operators in India.[1] On November 3, 2003, the Prasar Bharati Corporation replaced DD Metro channel with their new news channel, DD News.[2]

DD Metro programming consisted of many genres of television programmes, including family dramas boasting female protagonists, comedies, reality TV shows, and others. DD Metro's Prime Time shift Metro Gold[3][4] was a landmark in Indian television history, and DD Metro replaced STAR Plus as the top Hindi Entertainment channel for 2000-2001.[5] DD Metro also telecast some of the top Indian TV programmes from its sister channel, DD National. In addition, DD Metro was also known for dubbing the most popular Hollywood movies into Hindi.[6]
