MUMBAI: QYOU Media, a leading curator of premium 'best-of-web' video for multiscreen distribution, has expanded its partnership with Tata Sky, a leading content distribution platform in India, in the largest single-territory deployment of its linear channel to date. Previously available through Tata Sky's mobile app, this broader deal will make QYOU's 24/7 service of online video content available to 17 million Tata Sky connections across television and mobile.

The rapid growth in internet access has seen the number of users in India surge to almost 400 million. Online short-form video available through sites such as YouTube, Daily Motion and Facebook is hugely popular, with the average length of a viewed video in India being less than twenty minutes. To cater to the tastes of digital native millennial and generation Z audiences who are engaging with short-form video on a daily basis, Tata Sky will feature The QYOU's 24/7 service which curates unique digital-first content. This content will be featured through the screens and services its younger customers in India love to use, especially mobile and TV.

As part of the agreement, QYOU and Tata Sky will also start to feature content from local creators in India and some of the most popular online videos from the region in order to create highly localized shows that appeal to Indian audiences. The service will be available on Ch 200 (HD) & Ch 201 (SD) on Tata Sky and keeping in mind the 'on the go' nature of the content, it will also be available on the Tata Sky app on Live TV and VOD.

Tata Sky chief content officer Arun Unni commented: "Catering to audiences' changing preferences and tastes has always been the core focus for Tata Sky. This will be the first time that subscribers can view short format content 24x7 on their TV sets on the Tata Sky Mobile App. With the burgeoning popularity of online video in India and the incredible depth of unique content in QYOU's archives, it makes complete sense for us to provide this service to our subscriber base."

QYOU Media CEO Curt Marvis adds: "India is renowned for being a region filled with tech-savvy young people, who navigate the worlds of internet video and traditional television with complete ease. Having a curated mix of the best digital-first video content at their fingertips - whether they're watching on a mobile device or via the TV screen - means that they can enjoy the best of both worlds and never miss a thing. We are proud that our partnership with Tata Sky is evolving and enabling us to make the largest deployment of our channel in a single market to date.''
