MUMBAI: Continuing its winning streak after launching yet another successful season of Nano Drive with MTV and clocking in over 11 million visits on its website, iconic youth brand, MTV, is all set to wow its online audiences further with three exciting new shows on the web. Starting with a return of the extremely popular show CEAT MTV Chase The Monsoon which gets into gear from August 6th 2014, the brand is adding two new shows to its ever increasing kitty of web only content – Philips MTV Bachelor Pad and MTV The look. All these shows, along with being showcased on MTV’s website www.mtv.in.com will also be promoted extensively through dedicated Facebook fan pages and MTV’s vast social media presence with a reach of over 27 million.
MTV has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to web content as it has been creating successful digital branded content for the last four years. MTV long ago understood that as content becomes more and more platform agnostic, advertising on secondary platforms is becoming a little redundant. People don't want to sit through an ad before the video begins, especially if they’re are on a laptop/tab or mobile phone. But the evolution of video consumption has also lead to a lot happening in the video advertising space. And MTV is clearly leading the digital branded content surge in India with a host of innovative shows targeting different segments of audiences.
Announcing the launch, Eklavya Bhattacharya, Head of Digital, MTV India said, “Digital branded content is something we started nearly 4 years back and now we are working with a lot of brands and partners. We are really excited about the launch of 3 such properties and each is a unique format. We have always focused on offering a mix of good programming content to our digital viewers and this time it’s no different. MTV The Look can broadly be called a style show for hair care, CEAT MTV Chase the Monsoon is pretty much the future of reality shows and with Philips MTV Bachelor Pad, we are experimenting with fiction on the web.”
MTV is all set to race after the monsoon again with the second edition of MTV CEAT Chase the Monsoon about to take off. The show is about an ultimate test for 4 teams of 8 Riders, who will be riding through some of the harshest conditions through the most challenging roads. This year’s journey takes the riders from the driest place of the country, Kutch to the wettest place in the country- Cheerapunji. With a central involvement of social media and skills and determination pushed to the absolute limit, MTV CEAT Chase the Monsoon is sure to keep fans exhilarated!
MTV has got men all figured out in a fun, fiction show about five goofy roommates battling the basics through Philips MTV Bachelor Pad. The series made up of 16 webisodes takes views on a journey through the lives of five youngsters living in a cool bachelor pad in Mumbai. The show focuses on how they live their lives and the issues with the city. With the promise of appealing to millions of youth making a living in the metros, this show is one to look forward for!
And for the audience who have always been ahead of the style curve, Philips MTV The Look is a property that keeps their hair woes at bay with no effort at all. MTV is making bad hair days an urban legend.
