Not have much knowledge over MBMS but can answer this question.
One cell can support maximum of 8 MCCH channels and one MCCH corresponds to one MBSFN area.

Please correct me if my understanding is not correct.
Thanks in advance.

While reading specification, I came to know that an eNodeB can be part of max 8 MBSFN area. I am not able to understand from where this number '8' derives ?

I have very limited insight in mutlimedia multicast/broadcast services. An article says one LTE cell can have maximum of 8 MCCH channels and each MCCH configuration corresponds to configuration of one MBSFN area.
If this is correct then it concludes that one LTE cell can be part of max 8 MBSFN areas.

Each MBSFN area can be used to broadcast multiple multicast/broadcast services.
Now I want to how many TV channels (a kind of broadcast/multicast service) can be broadcasted ?
One related query is how an UE come know about the channels such as DD news, ESPN etc are being broadcasted in cell ?
