MUMBAI: ETV Marathi, a channel that mirrors the cultural ethos and spirit of Maharashtra has always prided itself in providing a range of differentiated content that redefines the family viewing experience.  The channel has always held an important place in the heart of every Maharashtrian and over the last year we have further strengthened this bond.

ETV Marathi over the last year has had a glorious run. The journey towards success has been achieved on the back of powerful programming that has redefined Marathi television history.  The transformation that started on the back of the mega blockbuster Kon Hoeel Marathi Crorepati establishing new standards of scale and grandeur in Marathi Television history, continued with other engaging and revolutionising content. Shows like 1760 Saasubbai, Majhe Mann Tujhe Jhale, Sundar Majhe Ghar have created new benchmarks in reach and social messaging and taken the channel towards the next echelon of growth.   

Speaking at the occasion of the Gudi Padwa celebrations held by ETV Marathi, Anuj Poddar, EVP Viacom18 & Business Head ETV Marathi said “ETV Marathi’s journey towards success has just started and the best phase is still ahead of us. Our story of the past year is akin to the common man. We resonated with the masses and elevated this common man to a pedestal. We are confident that with the support of the masses, we will continue to keep pace with the growth we have witnessed so far and emerge as the leading entertainment destination for all our viewers.”

Numbers speak volumes and if numbers are to go by, ETV Marathi is emerging as the preferred destination of Marathi entertainment amongst its viewers. The below data clearly highlights the consistently increasing power of the platform.
