Mumbai: Punjabi TV channel Pitaara TV on Saturday announced the global launch of its streaming service platform Chaupal. It will provide access to quality content for entertainment in three regional languages- Punjabi, Haryanvi, and Bhojpuri. The streaming service has been launched globally, across markets and devices.

Some of Chaupal’s key markets include the United States of America (USA), Canada, the United Kingdom (UK), the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Mauritius, and the European Union (EU).

The streaming service will provide original and exclusive movies, web series, podcasts, music, documentaries, and entertainment-based content from India and around the world to its viewers.

Commenting on the development, Pitaara TV’s director Sandeep Bansal said, “This is a proud moment for all of us who have worked so hard for the last three years to bring ‘Chaupal’ to life. Chaupal, as the name suggests, is a gathering of like-minded people who come together for a good time, so we wanted to create a platform that reminded people of their roots, where content could be watched in all the regional languages with family or friends.”

“Chaupal will keep surprising its consumers with incredible storytelling and talent turning imagination into reality," Bansal added.  

“The word ‘Chaupal’ signifies a community space where people gather for a specific purpose. Pitaara TV’s OTT is also one such platform where people speaking different languages and residing in different states and countries will come together to experience endless entertainment in the most affordable way possible. ‘Chaupal: Entertainment Beyond Boundaries’ is an endeavor to make online entertainment truly seamless for audiences anywhere, anytime", the channel said in a statement.

The launch was accompanied by the release of 12 originals (films and web series), alongside 50 exclusives and over 300 film offerings. Included in the originals list are "Panchhi" (thriller), "Vardaat" (murder mystery), "Range" (action/crime series), "Kala Shehar (film), Teri Meri Nahi Nibhni (rom-com film), Khich Jatta Khich (episodic), Main vs Tu (film/family drama), Please Kill Me" (suspense film), "Malaal" (Hariyanvi crime film), "London in Haryana" (Haryanvi web series), "Lakhimchand Haryanvi" (Haryanvi film), and "Chapper Phadke" (Haryanvi film). More releases such as "Murabba", "Chandigarh Waale", "Tunka Tunka", "Zila Sngroor", "Dustbin", "Shikari", "Shahi Majra", "Umran Ch Ki Rakheya", "Seep", "Miss Tanya", and "Shagan" are lined up.

 Hopeful about Chaupal’s potential, popular brands such as Xiaomi and Paul Merchants have partnered with it.

MI India’s category lead –smart TV, Eshwar Nilakantan remarked, “With Mi TV’s, our vision is to provide a unique interface for each user, and this comes to life with our dedicated focus on building PatchWall for TVs in India. Mi TVs have become India’s favourite smart TVs in no time and keeping our users in mind, we have made it our resolution to enhance the entertainment experience by providing varied content. We are proud to announce our partnership with OTT platform Chaupal which widens our rich content library for all our Punjabi, Haryanvi, and Bhojpuri users.
