The channel will also be releasing humorous music videos touching upon youth trends.

The channel went live with four new enticing content pieces with a mix of digital videos starting 23 January 2017 and has achieved a whopping 3 million plus views and over 1 lakh organic subscribers in less than two weeks of the release of the first web episode.

Since the beginning the objective of Happii-Fi has been not only to entertain but give the youth of the country a mix of content that they have not seen in India before & with this the, new and the future content promises to keep the entertainment quotient up and running high, helping Happii-Fi breakthrough the current digital clutter creating a market for itself in the digital world. We would also like to thank our partner “One Digital” an MCN for optimizing the channel and helping Happii-Fi carve its identity,” said SAB Group group CEO Manav Dhanda.

The channel has started a new trend in the digital content space with its light hearted mix of content which is beyond the obvious web series and web episodes catering to a variety of audiences across demographics. Having come up with concepts like Bro-Court- a take on the life of engineering college students and their issues that are solved by Bro played by the YouTube sensation Bhuvan Bam, Janhit Mein Jaari - a show that talks about global current affairs giving it a humorous touch, Rat Race – an animated series revolving around rat friends working in a call center called rat race teleservices and Peepal Ka Pedh Party – an alternate take on the UP state elections lead played by Bhojpuri superstar Dinesh Lal Yadav whose fate takes an unusual twist when he is selected as the face of the new party ‘Peepal Ka Pedh Party’ floated by a corrupt, out of power minister.
