Live Viacom18 takes engaged entertainment to an all-new-scale in India

MUMBAI: Launched in 2013 to enable the vision of OneViacom18, Integrated Network Solutions (INS) has grown at a swift pace. While the world toils to build ecosystems, Viacom18 takes the phenomenon to the next level by monetising its own ecosystem.

Thus we are taking our properties to tier II markets, to clubs, to colleges amongst others. It’s exciting time of Viacom18 and we believe in 2015 live entertainment will grow at an even more rapid scale.”

The much awaited, Vh1 Supersonic, which began as a year-end festival in its first year is now an IP which has increased its reach among consumers with 50 campus gigs and 50 club nights leading up to the main festival scheduled from 27 December to 30 December in Goa.
