MUMBAI: Times Network’s digital arm Timesnownews.com, which has completed two years, plans to strengthen its multilingual offerings and vertical expansions with the addition of Bengali and Telugu languages to the portal. Currently, the portal offers content in English, Hindi, Marathi, and Tamil.

The network also claimed that Timesnownews.com registered a 367% growth since inception. It also said that Timesnownews.com served 40 Million Unique Users in March 2019 and clocked 226 million page views. (ComScore, April 2019).

Timesnownews.com, it added, has leapfrogged legacy players and drives the vision – Digital First. Riding on the video trend, Timesnownews.com expanded its footprint into creating original content on auto, comedy, health, fiction, and drama. It has shows such as ‘Stylishly Yours’, ‘One for all’, ‘Odd Jobs’ and ‘Cutting Pyaar’. Video inventory (news + originals) touched 200 Million views and continues to grow steadily.

Times Network MD & CEO MK Anand said, “I am happy to see Timesnownews.com’s fast-paced growth. For me, this is the vehicle for the digital transformation of the Network. We have succeeded on the back of fastest news, content innovation and technological dominance. Despite being a late entrant, we have successfully disrupted the pecking order in a short span. Following the ethos of our legacy brand TIMES NOW, our digital service delivers news with speed, accuracy, and credibility. I am confident that the team led by Shouneel Charles & Akrita Reyar will continue to excel in serving the diverse needs and interests of the savvy news audience.”

Times Network business head digital Shouneel Charles said, “Catering content to the requisites of a wide range of consumers has been the bedrock of Timesnownews.com since its inception. Taking the brand from the consumers’ living rooms to their handhelds, Timesnownews.com connects with the NOW generation with its differentiated offerings. In a time of rising digital content disruption and innovation, I am delighted that Timesnownews.com in its short journey has pushed the envelope registering a stunning growth.”
