Eros Now, the digital over-the-top (OTT) South Asian entertainment platform, has expanded its content strategy with the launch of ‘Eros Now Prime’.
In an ambitious move to meet the ever-increasing demand for exemplary programming,
The first partnership for Eros Now Prime is a strategic multi-year deal with NBCUniversal International Distribution.
As part of this agreement, Eros Now subscribers in South Asia will have seamless access to some of the most talked-about series from NBCUniversal, in addition to the existing Eros Now library, which is comprised of over 12,000 movie titles, original shows and music, as well as short-format content through Quickie, Eros’s short-format video content offering.
A plethora of NBCUniversal TV titles will soon be available on the premium OTT platform for viewers to choose from: comedies such as the reboot of the critically acclaimed Will & Grace and Four Weddings and a Funeral, which was based on the 1994 film; compelling dramas such as New Amsterdam, which stars Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist) and Anupam Kher; Belgravia which is from the award-winning creative team behind the global hit series, Downton Abbey; Devils, which stars Patrick Dempsey (The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, Grey’s Anatomy) and Alessandro Borghi (The First King: Birth of an Empire); and Catherine the Great starring Helen Mirren, who was nominated for a Golden Globe® for her role in the series. Viewers will also be able to enjoy dramas such as Suits; Pearson, the spinoff of Suits; Temple; Bluff City Law; and Council of Dads.
Eros Now is known as a Middle India product with deep penetration and distribution in Tier II and Tier III markets, with only Indian-language content as part of the platform. However, with the advent of Eros Now Prime, the brand is now poised to serve the global Indian citizen across metro cities and beyond.
“With a growing focus on regional language and local content to cater to the next billion-user market, we are addressing users who increasingly view themselves as ‘global citizens’ and aspire to connect with places, people, and ideas beyond their locale. This will influence the persistence of English-language content, films, music consumption and networking on social media,” commented
Belinda Menendez, President & Chief Revenue Officer, Global Distribution and International, NBCUniversal, said, “We are delighted to collaborate with Eros Now as an OTT partner for the South Asia market. This new deal will not only bolster their existing portfolio of premium content, but it also ensures that their viewers will be able to enjoy NBCUniversal’s vast catalogue of comedy and drama series for many years to come.”
