In an industry first, Times Network recently announced the launch of a new show that will air across six of its channels and will span across genres of news, entertainment and movies. Based on premium luxury, the show, ‘Luxury Time’ is slated to air on weekend primetime slots on its key network channels ET Now, Times Now, Magicbricks Now, Romedy Now HD, Romedy Now SD and MN+.

Ashit Kukian, President Revenue, Times Network, said, “Luxury industry in India is a fast-growing industry with an average growth rate of 15 per cent to 20 per cent. Being the strongest in the English language space, reaching to 67 per cent of the English-speaking audience, Times Network attracts the leisured and privileged class of the HNIs. This makes the network and the show, ‘Luxury Time’ the best platform for the luxury industry to connect with its target audience and offer viewers unique experiences within the world of luxury. Additionally, the group lends brand ‘Luxury Time’ the rich history of being India’s largest and oldest media house, while leading in multiple segments.”
Kukian added, “It is expected that in 2020, the average age of an Indian will be 29 years, which reflects that the spending power of this population will continue to grow and they will be spending over 40 per cent of their monthly income on some of the world’s largest luxury brands. Keeping this in mind, the timing for launching the show now was most appropriate to reach millennial who are ready for exclusive experiences. Luxury Time will showcase forward-thinking ideas in luxury travel, business, culture, fashion, food and technology.”
