"To capture a share of a burgeoning subscription market, one requires an intuitive understanding of what the consumers want, without the users having to ask for it. Time spent on your app is driven by compelling content and product innovation while value for money coupled with easy payment gateways will be the pillars that drive growth in this category."
Adds Aman Srivastava, Head of Marketing, Digital Business, SonyLIV
“With a wholesome offering of originals, a host of regional content and a robust outline of top sporting events, we at SonyLIV have been making deeper inroads, reaching out to a diverse set of audience across geographies. Furthermore, our efforts in regionalizing the content have witnessed a tremendous surge in subscription base and viewership. Streaming our top sporting events in 6 different languages has gained momentum in non-metro cities. SonyLIV has observed an overall growth of 3X in terms of viewership and a significant rise in the paid subscriber base growing to 7 million from 5.5 million in April this year. Going forward, our aim is to provide a seamless viewing experience, engage with our audience in relevant ways and offer great content across languages.”
