Jay Hind! becomes the first Web TV Show to be syndicated on Television

Mumbai:The World’s first full format TV show online, Jay Hind! is now available on Canada’s Bollywood Times – a Hindi specialty channel owned by FDR Media Group Inc. In doing so it becomes the first Web based TV show to be syndicated on Broadcast Television.

With close to 230 episodes, the show has been successfully churning out superlative humorous content for more than 2 years and has pushed the envelope in terms of the way the world views entertainment. Undercover Productions Ltd. have ambitious plans for the show and are willing to travel the globe to achieve them!

FDR Media Group’s High Definition channels, Bollywood Times and Mehndi TV are now available for free preview to over two million Canadians on both Rogers and Bell Fibe TV for the next 90 days. Bollywood Times HD is an all-action all-the-time channel. Mehndi TV and Bollywood Times are among the first South Asian High Definition channels to be offered in North America. Viewers can watch Bollywood Times on Rogers HD channel 692, Rogers SD channel 691 and Bell Fibe TV channel 787.

Speaking about this association, Abhigyan Jha, Creator & Director of Jay Hind! and Founder & CEO of Undercover Productions Ltd. said, “When we launched the show the entire team was bound by the commitment of putting India on the global entertainment map. Initially movies and television shows were viewed on the internet, but Jay Hind! has pioneered a new trend where an online show will be aired on a television channel. Over the last two years we received lots of offers from various broadcast television channels but unfortunately our ‘frequencies’ did not match. We have formed a strong alliance with Bollywood Times and we are sure that this association will immensely benefit everyone involved.”

Sumeet Raghavan, anchor of Jay Hind! says, “Jay Hind! never ceases to amaze me. Just when I think, Wow! It can’t get bigger than this; we go and achieve new heights. My association with the show and the entire team has been terrific and we will continue to entertain our viewers across the world with amazing content.”

“Bollywood Times showcases the path breaking humour of Jay Hind! & Sumeet Raghvan in spectacular HD – and reinforces our core promise – the best programming from around the world that is also socially relevant for our Canadian viewers”, said FDR Media Group’s CEO Mr. Ron Maitra.

Jay Hind! continues its dominance in the digital space and has registered mind boggling views of over 110 million views in just over 2 years of its launch. The biweekly Late Night Comedy Show has recorded an average of 1.5 lakh views per day. A contemporary and edgier version of the iconic Movers & Shakers, by its very makers, Jay Hind! is watched by fans from places as far apart as Uganda and USA. And from the looks of it will now be available in even more countries, presented on multiple platforms.
