MUMBAI:  In a major move to dial up its already strong presence in the regional GEC play, Colors has announced the launch of its HD feed for three of its regional general entertainment channels - Colors Kannada, Colors Marathi and Colors Bangla. Colors is already known for its pioneering innovation, quality programming and high production values and launching the first HD Regional GECs in these markets is yet another milestone in its regional expansion plans. That the channels that have now become an intrinsic part of the social and cultural fabric of these regions, is apparent from the strong performance of its channels in these markets. Interestingly, this will be the first time that a regional GEC will add a Hi-Definition channel to its bouquet.

Announcing the launch of the HD channels, Viacom18  Group CEO Sudhanshu Vats said, “When we brought the regional GECs under the Colors umbrella, we committed to raising the bar on regional content. This philosophy saw us attain pole position in the Kannada market, become a strong leader in the Marathi market and build up the connect with our Bengali viewers. Interestingly, during this period, the regional markets have seen tremendous growth in consumer lifestyles. With the HD launch of our regional channels, we are once again raising the bar by provisioning for the premium viewing experience that the markets now crave.”

Colors Kannada, Colors Bangla and Colors Odiya  Project Head  Ravish Kumar  said, “We strive to offer varied content to our viewers without compromising on excellence - be it powerful storytelling, high production values, international reality formats, festival programming or movie premieres. Our aim is to delight audiences’ everyday with an entertaining and cohesive television viewing experience and launching  HD channels is yet another pioneering step in that direction.”

Colors Marathi and Colors Gujarati Project Head Anuj Poddar  elaborated saying, “Colors Marathi has consistently innovated and redefined the entertainment landscape for Marathi audiences with its varied bouquet of shows and big scale events, while yet staying true to the roots of its culture.  We are yet again playing a pioneering role and upping the ante by being the first to provide viewers with High Definition viewing experience.”

Colors Kannada HD will be present on leading platforms like Siti cable network ltd, Den networks limited, Hathway cable & datacom Pvt Ltd, Kable First India Pvt Ltd, Indusind Media and Communications ltd, E-infrastructure and entertainment (India) pvt ltd, Bhima riddhi digital systems and V4 media among others that offer HD services in Karnataka. Colors Marathi HD is being launched on Airtel and Tata Sky initially and will be rolled out on all other platforms, both direct to home and cable, thereafter. Colors Bangla will be available across all MSOs where DAS has been implemented over platforms such as Cable & DTH.

Providing an enhanced viewing experience and delivering high quality, affordable entertainment that connects viewers to their culture, the all new viewing experience at a regional level will only be available on Colors Kannada HD, Colors Marathi HD and Colors Bangla HD.
