Cira Media, one of the premier providers of content across TV platforms in India, has announced the launch of four channels, namely, Clubbing TV, Juke Box, Rock TV and Dancetrippin. The channels will run tailormade and extremely niche content targeted at the youth.
“Indian youth is becoming increasingly aware of and consuming international trends through platforms like the Internet. This can be seen from the fact the Vevo, a leading online International music destination, ranks 7th among the most viewed YouTube channels in India. Besides, we have also seen an upsurge in the number of solo concerts, tours and International music events in India. The crowd attendance at these concerts too has also multiplied over the years. Some of the biggest acts in the world want to perform here. There is, without a doubt, a big resurgence in the demand and consumption of international music in India. On television, however, we have just a handful of channels offering International music and there is need for such customised content. Numerous requisite artists are making headway into India. In due course, we intend to offer our niche music channels as a platform to broadcast their events live so they can reach out fans from all across the region,” said Pallav Nagar of Cira Media.
Announcing Aidem’s appointment, Manish Rach of Cira Media said, “Aidem Ventures is India’s leading independent media consulting, marketing and advertising sales company. We are delighted to have awarded the mandate to handle the media sales function of our international music channels to them. Aidem has been a specialist in the TV advertising domain and we are looking at capitalizing on their expertise with this new arrangement.”
Vikas Khanchandani, Director, Aidem Ventures, said, "As digitisation progresses and more channels are launched, the Aidem sales model makes sense for broadcasters. The association will help Cira Media efficiently and effectively leverage our robust media sales revenue management, while they focus on delivering premium international as well as localized content across the channels."
Kaushal Dalal, EVP, Aidem Ventures, said, “This is great news for Aidem and with this deal coming through, we now have a more comprehensive package to offer to our advertisers and agencies. From the marketing perspective, this is a good turn for brands and advertisers targeting the urban youth. They can nowemploy a better channel mix to reach out and engage with their audiences.”
