Viacom18 names VOD platform VOOT

Viacom18 Digital Ventures has named its video-on-demand platform VOOT. The portal will have both old and new content from the media company.

VOOT promises content over a wide variety of connected devices via Wi-Fi, 4G, 3G and 2G networks. Video streaming services are picking pace in India. ErosNow, the OTT arm of Eros International, recently announced that as many as 30 million people have registered on the site.

“As one of the fastest growing media companies in the country, for us at Viacom18, digital content creation, delivery and access are essential focus areas for driving growth. With VOOT, we set out to leverage an already digitally engaged audience with our content offerings. VOOT will not only be the singular and exclusive destination for Viacom18’s content portfolio, but will have an equally strong focus on original programming created especially for the platform. The brand mission of VOOT is to create a whole new world of entertainment, filled with happy discoveries and addictive content,” said Viacom 18 group CEO Sudhanshu Vats, according to Indian Television.
