DistroTV features more than 270 multicultural channels and is growing, with everything from news, sports, movies, music and entertainment, and lifestyle content. This includes original content and new channel offerings that cater to English, Southeast Asian/Indian and Spanish-speaking audiences, as well as a recently released channel bundle that targets the African community.
Available to stream for free in more than 60 markets through its apps on streaming devices and smart TVs, as well as worldwide on the web through distro.tv, the platform features something for every viewer.
“We are thrilled to join the VIZIO family, particularly at a time when we are continuing to grow our viewership and channel content at a rapid pace,” said Navdeep Saini, co-founder and CEO of DistroScale, parent company of DistroTV. “By expanding our distribution via VIZIO Smart TVs, we can continue to provide audiences with the content they crave, and all while maintaining our FAST no-sign up, credit card, or email required model.”
Vikas Khanchandani, Country Head India at DistroScale, said, "US has more than 87% homes with at least one Connected TV and other western countries are seeing scale as well. Vizio is one of the largest CTV players in the US market and brings access to large viewership base within Vizio for Indian content owners. It’s an opportunity to tap into the large advertising market in US and other western countries and simultaneously combat piracy in those markets. FAST (Free Ad Supported Television) is bringing the lean back linear experience for users on Television and is solving for content discovery with sharper defined cohorts. Distro is focussed on building a very strong South Asian bouquet of content for the diaspora audiences across the world and bring in the ad monetisation through its vast global advertising footprint."
“VIZIO appreciates DistroTV’s dedication to building personalised experiences for today’s streaming audience,” said Chris Tanquary, Senior Director of Business Development at VIZIO. “VIZIO strives to be a place where viewers have endless entertainment options across all categories and genres so there is something for everyone.”
