India’s leading news network Republic Media Network’s channels Republic TV and Republic Bharat will now be beamed to the USA through Dish and Sling TV, the largest online and TV platforms in the USA.
After the network’s launch in the MENA Region, Canada and the UK, India’s fastest-growing media network’s next global foray is in the USA, where the channel enjoys unmatched viewership and popularity.
Priya Mukherjee, President, Distribution and International Revenue, Republic Media Network, said, “With strong programming and one of the widest news coverage from India, Republic TV and R Bharat have formed a special bond with viewers. Our USA plans have been in the works for over a year and we don’t want to leave any stone unturned to deliver the best programming mix for our US viewers. With Republic TV as the No. 1 English News channel in India since its inception in 2017 to date and its successful run in the MENA Region, Canada and UK, we are delighted to bring Republic TV and Republic Bharat to our viewers in the USA on Dish and Sling TV. With our compelling content, huge fondness and appreciation for the channel from the Indian diaspora internationally, we will endeavour to build value through our partners for all the stakeholders.”
For the USA market, World View Media Network will work closely with Republic Media Network, taking the association forward after the UK launch of R Bharat.
Talking about the association, Manish Vasisht, Director of World View Media Network Limited, said, “With the strong demand for Republic TV and R Bharat across the globe, we are excited about this association and look forward to creating one of the best user experiences for English and Hindi news viewers based in the US. We will use our international experience and expertise to grow the brand of Republic Media Network.”
Brand Republic enjoys unmatched popularity in the USA, witnessed during the Howdy Modi coverage from Houston and New York where the channel was the most preferred among the diaspora and garnered the highest ratings.
Since its launch in May 2017, Republic TV has been the No. 1 news channel in India in the English news category for 135 weeks straight. In Indian television history, no Indian channel has been able to achieve such a following.
