DistroTV Desi delivers premium video content from global producers across territories such as North America, the UK, Bollywood, Latin America, China and Southeast Asia.
DistroTV, an independent ad-supported streaming television platform, has launched ‘DistroTV Desi’, which offers more than 15 premiere South Asian channels.
The bundle is available across the US, UK, Europe, and Canada and it does not require a subscription or registration. It covers a spectrum of topics to connect with people around entertainment, lifestyle, sports, news, documentaries and international content in live, linear and video-on-demand formats.
DistroTV aims to fill the void by offering “culturally rich” channels in a free bundle so that diverse audiences can stream content that might have otherwise been locked behind a subscription or paywall. These include premium South Asian channels such as Times Now, Republic TV, Zoom and Mastiii TV.
Speaking about the DistroTV Desi, Navdeep Saini, Co-founder and CEO of DistroScale, Parent Company of DistroTV, said: “We’re thrilled to provide our diverse and growing global audience with the content they crave, without any subscription fees. No longer will Desi communities in these major markets feel that they cannot access their favourite shows or channels, or feel restricted by associated costs. Our mission at DistroTV is to provide content for every viewer, on every device. And that’s exactly what we’re accomplishing with this latest bundled offering.”
Rajesh Nair, Vice President of Business Development & Content Acquisition at DistroScale, Parent Company of DistroTV, added: “This is just the beginning, we have many more channels in the pipeline. Smaller southeast Asian audiences with regional language roots like Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, and Malayalam who have been largely ignored by mainstream media platforms can now watch their favourite channels in their regional language on DistroTV Desi, without having to depend on dodgy boxes and pirated apps.”
