Viacom18 has already expanded the channel in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East & North Africa and Singapore. 
Viacom18 head - International Business and Sun18 Media COO Gaurav Gandhi added, "ATN, as the leader in the South Asian entertainment market in Canada, was our obvious choice as a partner for the distribution of Aapka Colors in the market.
