Viacom18 plans to launch its video-on-demand (VOD) service VOOT in the United Kingdom in November. VOOT will be offered as a freemium service rather than a subscription model, in partnership with UK telcos. Viacom18 channels such as Colors, Rishtey, Colors HD, MTV Beats, and Rishtey Cineplex are already available in the United Kingdom. The platform is also set to launch 18 original series over the coming months.
“We have been extremely lucky to be partnering with a galaxy of very talented and committed actors, writers, and directors to bring forth our second bundle of Voot Originals, starting with 18 multi-genre and multi-lingual series.”
