On Saturday 6th June, Republic TV will be shown on Star India’s digital platform Hotstar, making it the first Indian news channel to be live streamed on the platform. Their website republicworld.com is expected to go live on the same date.
“We are deeply committed to making sure that we continuously widen Hotstar’s offering, and the launch of Republic TV on Hotstar fills a big gap in our portfolio,” said Shankar, reported by The Indian Express.
“We are confident of breaking the digital barrier and believe this is the first step as news produced in India goes digital and then global. We believe the coming together of these two exciting brands and services will take the news to the 90 million plus viewers on Hotstar every month,” said Goswami.
The team is quite active on social media and timely producing videos featuring Arnab Goswami mentioning big names to let them know about his comeback.
Earlier, Republic TV also announced its alliance with Microsoft to intensify newsroom richness with the use of the technology giant’s array of products.
