DishTV‘s exciting new OTT aggregation platform Watcho, a one-stop shop for streaming entertainment, exceeded the milestone of three million paid subscriptions, closely following its attainment of the two million subscriber mark in August this year.
This is a significant highlight for the platform’s sustained growth in the competitive OTT aggregation and entertainment landscape since its launch in 2022, the DTH company said in a media statement yesterday.
Watcho, which is DTH service provider Dish TV’s OTT platform, has demonstrated exceptional growth, amassing a user base exceeding 90 million mark since launch, showcasing its dedication towards delivering high-quality entertainment solutions to a diverse audience. The platform not only gained a substantial user base but also solidified its position as a leading OTT solution, the statement added.
The success of Watcho is attributed to its unique approach, offering bundled packages of leading OTT services under a single subscription, along with its own exclusive content under ‘Watcho Exclusives’.
This provides users with a seamless and comprehensive entertainment experience, featuring 16 popular platforms such as Disney+ Hotstar, Zee5, Sony Liv, Lionsgate Play, Hungama Play, HoiChoi, Chaupal, Manorama Max, FanCode, Raj Digital, Tarang Plus, ShortsTV, ETV Win, Stage, Aao Nxt, and ‘Watcho Exclusives’.
The OTT super app also grants entry to Watcho’s extensive collection of original content, including 45+ captivating web series, Swag (user-generated content), popular shows, and exclusive live TV.
Commenting on the achievement, DishTV CEO Manoj Dobhal said, “As we celebrate the achievement of three million paid subscriptions on Watcho – OTT Super App, it’s a moment of pride and gratitude. This milestone underscores the resonance of Watcho as a unique offering that provides complete 360-degree OTT entertainment on one platform ‘One hai to done hai’.
“The audience has validated this new concept and solidified our position as a preferred entertainment destination. We interpret these numbers not just as subscriptions but as a measure of trust, loyalty, and a validation of our commitment to delivering top-notch entertainment.”
Sukhpreet Singh, Corporate Head – Marketing, Dish TV and Watcho, said, “For user’s, the idea to create their own content and not just consume the given content, has given us a significant foothold in the market. Reaching this landmark in just about a year reaffirms our commitment to providing compelling content and innovative products. We look forward to continuously evolving and sustaining this momentum by shaping the future of entertainment”
