NDTV's new channels are still not making the impact they hoped for, at least not at my house. This is largely due to them being on and off my cableman's guldasta of channels. And for some time, it has been off rather than on. The only decent offering in the English news space for me to catch the news seems to be Headlines Today, the English entrant of the TV Today group that provides Aaj Tak. It provides more than just headlines, but doesn't elaborate too much on news, making it a useful alternative if you're not interested in detailed analyses of hard news. A mix of appealing graphics, news items and, ahem, newsreaders (one very attractive one at any rate) halts the quick-surfing-remote. Works for me right now.
