Eros Now App to be pre-installed on selected Sony Smart TV’s in India


KOLKATA: Eros Now today announced its collaboration with one of the leading and most trusted television brands, Sony India, to provide unlimited online entertainment to consumers in India. This alliance between the two renowned household brands enables a large base of existing (BRAVIA E series and newer TV models) as well as prospective Sony BRAVIA customers to access Eros Now's pre-installed app seamlessly on their smart TVs and enjoy its massive content catalogue on high definition, superior quality screens.

Indian families have been watching television together more frequently since the coronavirus lockdown began in March. At a time when consumers are increasingly enjoying content along with their families on smart screens, this partnership caters to the demand of audiences across demographics.

Under lockdown, with homes transformed into theatres, the audience can now binge-watch Eros Now's original shows, over 12,000 movie titles, music videos, short-format content Quickies and more on the Eros Now app on their Sony BRAVIA TVs most evenings, with their entire family.

Commenting on the announcement, Eros Now CEO Ali Hussein said, "The recent surge of online video streaming on smart TVs offers a massive opportunity for leading OTT players and Smart TV manufacturers to join hands and picture a new growth story. There is a vast audience base across demographics who have now started enjoying online video content, and smart TV is boosting this habit. Thus, the partnership with Sony TV helps in further increasing the co-viewing experience in India with family-friendly video content offered on Eros Now platform becoming a growing trend and resonating across all age groups."

Sony India BRAVIA Business head Ranvijay Singh added, "Our consumer-centric approach led us to partner with one of India's leading OTT player, Eros Now.
