Viacom18 to launch Voot in the UK


Viacom18 has confirmed the launch of video-on-demand service Voot in the UK in November.

The ad-funded service first launched in India in 2016 and the UK launch is the beginning of an international expansion of the service, which includes programming from channels including Colors, MTV India, Nickelodeon India and Rishtey.

It will also be launching 18 multi-lingual premium web series across genres and adding news to its content offering. UK users will soon also be able to access many Bollywood movies via the service , plus several ‘Voot Original’ shows.

The company said:
“Voot is all set to debut internationally starting November 2018 with its entry into the United Kingdom. With an Indian origin population of around 1.825 million, the UK market presents a significant reach opportunity for Voot to leverage."

Viacom 18 is a joint venture between the US media giant Viacom and India's TV18.
