LeEco appoints Divya Dixit as director content marketing for India; will launch VOD platform in FY 2016

MUMBAI: The global internet and technology conglomerate LeEco also called as the Netflix of China for its content eco-system has appointed Divya Dixit as its new director of content marketing for India. Dixit will be based in Mumbai. In her new role, she will look after the global content platform in digital space and will work towards building the brand’s presence stronger in India. Dixit was unavailable for comment.

The company will focus on embedded content for TV and mobile phones and will also launch its own direct content platform in this financial year. For this new platform, the internet and technology organization will acquire content as well as produce substantial hours of original content for its audience.

In January this year, the company had tied-up with Eros Now for video-on-demand (VOD) and YuppTV for TV content streaming. While its partnership with Yupp TV will give its users access to YuppTV's catalogue of live TV channels, the deal with Eros Now will allow the on-the-go users to watch Bollywood content and regional movies on LeEco phones.

It has now renewed its exclusive partnership with Flipkart for the launch of its next phone in India. An agreement to this effect was signed yesterday by LeEco India COO smart electronic business Atul Jain and Flipkart VP business Anil Goteti.

The international firm headquartered in Beijing has already set up a service office in Delhi while its content division will be based in Mumbai. The company's technical office is based in Bangalore. All the executives in the top management from India will report to the senior management in Beijing. The company is undergoing restructuring inform sources.

Earlier, the company had launched two smart phones in India, Le 1s and Le Max, which were available exclusively on Flipkart. With a record of bringing path breaking innovations to the country, the LeFans will see entertainment playing a whole new way and can expect a super announcement on 3 May 2016.

LeEco also launched an all-electric concept on 26 April 2016 that aspires to beat Tesla at its own game. It presented its first self-driving automobile, dubbed LeSEE Super EV, at the Beijing Motor Show and described it as a smart connected electric vehicle.
