  Colors Tamil’s game show based on KBC will be an all-women edition
Posted by: nairrk - 10-29-2019, 12:22 PM - Forum: Television News - No Replies

MUMBAI: Colors Tamil has announced that its upcoming Tamil version of the world-famous game show ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ will be an all-women edition. Titled ‘Kodeeswari’, the show will be hosted by the iconic superstar of Tamil Cinema, Radikaa Sarathkumar. In a first-ever, the show will see only women on the Hot Seat.

“Women have always put the dreams of their loved ones ahead of their own. Kodeeswari is a tribute to the unconditional love and selfless sacrifice made by millions of women every day and everywhere. It is a show that believes in giving back, in resurrecting modest ambitions, in giving dreams an opportunity to come true. Because hearts that beat for others should never skip a beat for themselves,” said Viacom18 head regional entertainment Ravish Kumar.

“Colors Tamil proudly announces Kodeeswari – an all-women edition of the popular quiz show hosted by the highly accomplished and iconic Radhika Sarathkumar. In a first-ever, the show will see only women on the hot seat. With the support and encouragement of their loved ones, women shall play for an opportunity to make their own dreams come true.”

Commenting on the launch of ‘Kodeeswari’, Colors Tamil Business Head Anup Chandrasekharan said, “At Colors Tamil, we have always identified the pulse of the audience and presented to them offerings that are unique and coming of age. Shows like Enga Veetu Mapillai, Dance Vs. Dance, Singing Stars in the non-fiction space have generated tremendous buzz for the channel and we hope to maintain the same with our latest endeavour, ‘Kodeeswari’. As we begin our audition process, we urge all inspired and educated women of Tamil Nadu to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity to take the Hot Seat with none other than Radikaa Sarathkumar. We thank Radikaa for joining hands with us in this incredible journey.”

“Women are an important part of human society, acting act as the binding force. Amidst the cacophony to empower women, that has become a cliché across geographies and communities, I think, the need to simply acknowledge her for who she is and what she stands for has been lost. ‘Kodeeswari’ shall be a platform where every contestant on the Hot Seat shall be celebrated for who she is and her journey amidst all her personal challenges,” said Radikaa Sarathkumar, who will host Kodeeswari.

To be a part of this prestigious and women-exclusive game show, one needs to stay tuned to Colors Tamil every day at 8 pm starting 28th October (Monday) to November 3rd (Sunday). Each question will be active for 24-hours. Just one right answer from these seven questions can help one get a chance to participate in the show.

  &flix partners with Sony Pictures to premiere Hollywood movies first in India
Posted by: nairrk - 10-27-2019, 09:17 AM - Forum: Television Programs - No Replies

MUMBAI: English movie channel &flix in association with Sony Pictures Television will premiere the latest Hollywood blockbusters ahead of their TV premieres anywhere in the world. Starting October 2019, the channel redefines television viewing by bringing World Television Premieres of the biggest movies within a few months of their theatrical releases.

With the window for television premiere for other (non-US) markets being close to a year, &flix has shortened the window significantly to just five months. And who better than the coolest agents protecting planet Earth – Men In Black: International, to kick-start this momentous experience.

The series of premieres reaching India before the world also include some of the biggest titles such as Spider-Man: Far From Home, Brightburn, Angry Birds 2, Jumanji: The Next Level, Charlie’s Angels (2019) and Zombieland 2.

The channel has launched a disruptive campaign to celebrate the Hollywood blockbusters which will be available on Indian TV before the world.

Sharing his views, ZEEL Business Head, English Cluster Kartik Mahadev said, “ZEEL, as a network, has truly been the force behind many firsts in the industry and here is one more from the English Cluster that we are excited about. &flix, a relatively new channel, is making its mark as the preferred destination for new Hollywood movies. A year ago, the channel was launched with the promise that ‘No two Sundays will be the same again’ and we’ve truly upheld this by showcasing the maximum number of Hollywood movie premieres in the category. The channel has gained share and reached the Top 3 in HD viewership within a year of launch.”

“It’s our constant endeavour to listen to our consumer and provide the subscribers of &flix a better channel experience. One of the barriers in the English movies category is the long time it takes for Hollywood movies to premiere on television, after their theatrical release. In some cases, the wait is over a year by which time the buzz around the movie is diluted and the fan experience isn’t what it should be. Through the World Television Premieres initiative on &flix, we have addressed this challenge by crunching the wait time for Hollywood movies on TV by almost half. Movie fans can now watch the most awaited Hollywood movies within a few months of their theatrical release. We have launched an engaging new awareness campaign to announce this offer, as we look to build the &flix subscriber base with this initiative. It brings us immense satisfaction in delighting our consumers while setting a new benchmark in the English movies category,” he added.

Commenting on the same, Sony Pictures Television VP, International Business, South Asia Sonika Bhasin said, “We have had a long partnership with ZEE that has given us the opportunity to provide our audience an enriching theatrical experience through Flix First Screenings, and then, to bring the movies to a wider audience with Flix First Premieres on TV. Now, as we move ahead, we are happy to extend our association with the launch of World Television Premieres. It is our endeavor to present a visual extravaganza to our viewers in India, bringing their favorite movies to TV faster than ever before. We hope to continue bringing the best in the future and keep pushing boundaries with &flix.”

Direct-to-home (DTH) provider Dish TV has announced that it is now offering three types of set-top boxes to its subscribers. This announcement comes weeks after Airtel Digital TV launched its Airtel XStrem Box in the market. Following the suit of Airtel, Dish TV has also started providing its Dish SMRT Hub. This third type of set-top box is based on Android TV. It joins the more conventional SD and HD set-top boxes out in the market. The inclusion of this third type of set-top box simply offers more options to customers out there. Given that there are three set-top boxes, let’s recap the features and pricing of each one.

The DTH operator has priced this at Rs 1,590 with a similar one-month free channel pack subscription. The rest of the benefits including coupons and warranty are similar to what users will get with DishNXT SD set-top box.

  The Viral Fever launches second chapters of ‘Flames’, ‘Fathers’ on MX Player
Posted by: nairrk - 10-22-2019, 02:20 PM - Forum: Television News - No Replies

MUMBAI: Digital content creator The Viral Fever (TVF) along with the OTT platform MX Player has launched the second chapters of two web series ‘Flames’ and ‘Fathers’.

The partnership between the two platforms allows the shows from TVF, penetrate a larger audience base with MX Player’s 75 million daily active users. While the second season of ‘Flames’ went live on 18 October, the second volume of ‘Fathers’ will stream on 25 October with both shows being available on TVFPlay and MX Player.

Directed by Apoorv Singh Karki, the second season of ‘Flames’ is based on an innocent young college romance that sees Rajat and Ishita’s relationship evolve as they experience the many firsts in their relationship. ‘Fathers Vol.2’, directed by Prem Mistry, on the other hand, is a laugh out loud show about 3 middle-aged fathers who want to live the GenZ life while trying to make sense of the idiocrasies associated with the younger lot.

The Viral Fever president, COO Karan Chaudhary said, “The phenomenal success we witnessed with the season one of ‘Flames’ and ‘Fathers’ validates our vision of creating clutter-breaking relatable content for our audience. Partnering with the leading OTT platform like MX Player fuels our ambition of recruiting newer audiences while, of course, keeping our loyal consumers glued to our content through TVFPlay. It is heartening to see our shows being readily consumed by more and more viewers which motivates us to continuously create more meaningful content.”

  WrestlingTV to live stream U-23 UWW World Wrestling Championships
Posted by: nairrk - 10-22-2019, 02:18 PM - Forum: Television News - No Replies

MUMBAI: Video streaming platform WrestlingTV will stream all the Under-23 UWW World Wrestling Championship action LIVE in the Indian sub-continent for the very first time. The UWW U-23 Wrestling World Championship is slated to be held from 28th October to 3rd November, in Hungary, Budapest. The platform launched during the UWW World Wrestling Championships, where 6.5 million users tuned in.

India will be fielding a 30-member strong squad for the freestyle, Greco Roman and women’s events. The competition will feature 631 athletes from 64 countries across the world. Ten wrestlers will be bidding to defend their U-23 World Wrestling Championships titles.

Indian wrestling’s excellent performance at the UWW World Wrestling Championships, where the grapplers from the country secured an unprecedented haul of five medals has raised hopes of yet another stirring display on the mat.

“India is a huge market for the sport which is evident from the wrestling lovers who turn up in thousands for the dangals and kushtis in remote villages in Haryana, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh or any other state in the country. However, they are deprived of quality international wrestling content. This has strengthened our resolve to bring all the major UWW international and national wrestling competitions to millions of wrestling fans in India and the sub-continent LIVE,” said Sporty Solutionz CEO Ashish Chadha.

Sporty Solutionz is the parent company of WrestlingTV which holds United World Wrestling’s exclusive media and broadcast rights for the Indian sub-continent.

Inspired by Ravi Kumar, who brought a silver last year from the Under-23 UWW World Wrestling Championship, the likes of Sajan Bhanwal, Sharvan and Vicky will be the ones to watch out for in this edition. While Bhanwal is a three-time World Junior Championships medallist, Sharvan too has established his immense talent with a gold medal in Junior Asian Championship in 2017. Vicky, meanwhile, has already attained the sixth position in seniors in 92kg and will be hungry to make his mark.

“Wrestling has a bigger number of committed fans than most other sports in the country. With each major bout streamed LIVE this fan base will strengthen further. Players will get better recognition and wrestling will grow faster in all aspects of a modern-day sport. WrestlingTV has come up as a major turning point to boost our grand programme for wrestling,” said Wrestling Federation of India president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

The sport scaled a new high in India during the UWW World Wrestling Championships, when 11 million users engaged in live streaming and video content on WrestlingTV during the 9 days of action.
