FoodFood, the Indian food and lifestyle channel, will now be available as a live channel on SonyLiv. Content from the channel that was launched in 2012 was already available on SonyLiv. The OTT platform is aiming to double its repertoire of exclusive food content from 4,000 hours to 8,000 hours over the next 12 hours with this move.
Giving its viewers and subscribers a whole new level of experience of engaging with food, SonyLiv has joined hands with Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, Rajshri Food and other top celebrity chefs to satiate the taste-buds of food lovers and enthusiasts alike and take them on a gastronomic delight.
Rajshri Food has emerged as a popular YouTube channel that meets the needs of the millennials by offering them an assortment of quick fix recipes, main courses and healthy alternatives that will feature renowned chefs like Varun Inamdar and Ruchi Bharani. SonyLiv will feature these culinary episodes spanning 5-7 minutes each.
âWith the introduction of the food genre, SonyLiv is committed to engaging its viewers with the best of world cuisine curated by top celebrity chefs. We have displayed our pioneering edge by being the first OTT platform in India to introduce the category of food. Not only that, we are committed to doubling our repertoire of exclusive food content from 4,000 hours to over 8,000 hours over the next 12 months.

âWith this association with SonyLiv, I hope to repeat the same success in a new digital world.
