Anjan TV is betting on its diversified content offering to
help it grow in the nascent Bhojpuri entertainment genre.
TV Business Head Manjit Hans says that the strategy is to
offer content that has something for all age-groups. The channel
has a mix of fiction and non-fiction shows that spans across
genres like family drama, comedy, and mythology besides cookery
and travel shows.
the popularity of the Bhojpuri entertainment industry, movies
and music also form an integral part of Anjans content
women form the core TG of Anjan TV, films and movie helps
the channel in attracting male and youth TG. We want
to be different by offering content that has something for
everyone irrespective of the age and gender, he says.
tap into the male youth TG, Anjan has a show called Teem
Kuwarein which is a take on the life of three bachelors
who migrate to the city in search of jobs.
to Hans, what differentiates Anjan from its competitors is
the fact that it has consciously stayed away from reality
television format notwithstanding its popularity both locally
airs three and a half hours of original content every day.
line with its differentiation strategy, Anjan TV had recently
bagged the broadcast rights for airing the matches of Celebrity
Cricket League (CCL) team Bhojpuri Dabanggs.
says the CCL with its unique combination of entertainment
and cricket will help raise Anjans brand profile besides
giving it a viewership spike.
