There are Live TV offerings, new-age original content for those who are looking for variety, and user-generated videos on SWAG for exhibiting talent.


This platform brings original content to the viewers with its on-the-go snackable video content, so the brand proposition of “Fun Fatafat” has resonated very well with young audiences across the country.

We are delighted to have achieved this milestone of 45 million users on our platform. When we embarked on the journey of providing on-demand quality content with the launch of WATCHO, we wanted to supplement our DTH user viewing experience. Today, WATCHO is serving exciting exclusive content to all its users, and at the same time, it is also offering Live TV services on-the-go to DishTV and D2H customers. WATCHO is also fast emerging as the preferred platform for users to showcase their talent. We remain committed to continuously strengthening our offering and improving our user experience on the platform, and we are glad that we are well on our way to achieving many more milestones.

To recognize and provide exposure to the emerging talent pool across the country, This platform also allows users to create and showcase content on its user-generated content platform ‘WATCHO Swag’. With this initiative, This platform not only promotes creative minds by helping them post their content on the app but also gratifies them with rewards and bigger opportunities.

In an effort to inspire emerging content creators, This platform also recently collaborated with Asia’s largest content festival – India Film Project (IFP) for its 11th season and became the exclusive platform for participants to showcase their work.

Engaging and short-format content has always been an unmet need for viewers across the country, particularly amongst millennials and GenZ who are at the forefront of consumption as well as creation. Riding on these trends, WATCHO continued to gain strength with a strong semi-urban presence in addition to significant tier-1 visibility. The app has notched up more than 45 million user base so far. We are enthused with this new milestone WATCHO has achieved in a very short time, and we intend to continue to work towards making it the first choice for our users.
