MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Networks India’s (SPNI) premium VoD platform SonyLIV has extended its digital footprint in South India by launching over 4000 hours of Telugu and Tamil content.

The platform has added TV shows, web originals, and films to enable its viewers in South India to enjoy a localised viewing experience. In its bid to offer genre binding, authentic and relatable stories, SonyLIV is partnering with biggies like Jagapathi Babu, Gunnam Gangaraju, Maruthi, Navdeep, Sharath Marar, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Singeetham Srinivas and Balaji Mohan across markets to lead its regional content catalogue.

Headlining the announcement is the launch of its first-ever originals – ‘Bhajana Batch’ and ‘Aivar’ in Telugu and Tamil respectively. The extensive Telugu slate also includes a string of diverse titles like ‘They call him Animal’ and ArthaSastram (a political thriller) among others.

The upcoming line-up has shows like ‘My Marappu’ which scores as the first regional show to be shot completely in the USA. In addition to the new content libraries, a hefty chunk of Sony’s existing shows, TVF originals like Pitchers, Tripling and Permanent Roommates will be available in Telugu and Tamil, effective June.

Launched in 2013, SonyLIV records around 109 million app downloads riding on the most sought after stories and seamless viewing experience. As pioneers in the digital entertainment space, SonyLIV was quick to acknowledge and address the growing need for regional content and launched India’s first ever language original – Yolo in Marathi followed by Kacho Papad Pako Papad in Gujarati. Currently, over 400 shows across Indian languages cater to the growing demands for local content amongst SonyLIV subscribers.

SPNI Business Head – Digital Uday Sodhi said, “As pioneers, SonyLIV recognised the potential in localising the entertainment experience for its consumers by amplifying reach and engagement. We are delighted to launch our services in Tamil and Telugu and strengthen our brand further in the digital ecosystem. Riding on our content portfolio, we are confident of offering viewers relatable stories and local stars coupled with a seamless digital streaming experience.”
