MUMBAI: The Punjabi entertainment industry has been in great demand and hence has been producing content that is widely consumed not only amongst the Punjabi community, but also amongst the large Hindi speaking masses.

Keeping in mind the demand, Techzone, an aggregator, developer, publisher and distributor of entertainment content in the world, has entered into a strategic alliance with a Punjabi entertainment channel, PTC Punjabi. The alliance will provide a platform for direct interaction with audience for the channel by offering Techzone?s short code 56060.

With this alliance, PTC Punjabi aims to engage its vast and much spread out audience across various parts of the country and interact with them via SMS services, program related activities (MYSMS, PTT), contests like opinion polls/Voting and subscription based services (News, Astrology, Jokes etc.).

Speaking about the alliance, PTC Network CEO & director Rajiee M Shinde said, ?Interactive Marketing enhances Viewer Engagement with the channel and SMS & other VAS services offered by Techzone help us to that aspect. We are looking at more such Interactive Services and this strengthening our relationship with our ardent viewers who seek us out, platform irrespective.?

The response of the SMS services has been overwhelming already with 1.5 lakhs SMS subscription between Oct. 2012 and Mar. 2013. The highest gainers till now are PTC Music awards with 28, 500 sms hits, PTC Film awards with 14, 000 sms hits and the Miss PTC Punjabi Beatuty & Talent Pageant with 16, 000 sms hits.

PTC Network president & director Rabindra Narayan said, ?Significant SMS responses on our key properties have been extremely encouraging. Viewer Response & reaction important in shaping further content strategy. Our viewers are extremely loyal and almost consider it their right to convey their feedback back to the channel. We are always striving to better our content basis their feedback, rather than only relying on Industry Viewership figures.?

On the same, Techzone MD Naveen Bhandari said, ?PTC Punjabi is the No. 1 Punjabi entertainment channel in India, Australia, UK, USA & Canada and the reason for this is the unique content they offer to their consumers. We are glad to become a part of such an authentic brand where our robust technology will engage the user directly with the channel and also give Techzone a large platform for creating better visibility for ourselves. PTC Punjabi has a strong international appeal, thus, we are expecting to reinforce our global customer base through this alliance. This alliance in future will also prove to be another bench mark in our many efforts to strengthen our regional content portfolio in India and becoming the preferred VAS provider across the world.?

In future, Techzone plans to extend its VAS services like CRBT, IVR, WAP and apps etc for PTC Punjabi to make the channel?s content available on mobile platform and ensure more effective content monetization for the channel.

Commenting on the ongoing adoption of VAS services amongst the known media channels, Bhandari added, ?Over the years we have witnessed a paradigm shift in the content monetization space. VAS has opened new doors for the non VAS related content providers to reach out and opine with their audience even without having to associate themselves with telecom operators. Techzone wishes to spear head this change with the advanced technology and reach, and its unique content monetization strategies. ?
