Arre announces partnership with SonyLIV

Arré has announced its partnership with SonyLIV, the digital entertainment platform from Sony Pictures Networks (SPN).The partnership, which will enable SonyLIV users to watch Arré’s latest web series on its web and mobile platforms, will also see its entire video content library available as a part of SonyLIV’s extensive catalogue in due course.

Launched earlier this month, Arré’s latest offering titled ‘Official Chukyagiri’ is a five-part slice-of-life fiction dramedy. It is targeted towards the ‘attitudinally millennial’ audience which shows life in the corporate world through h the eyes of an intern, Spandan Chukya. Apart from this series, SonyLIV users can also view shows such as ‘A.I.SHA My Virtual Girlfriend (A.I.SHA)’, ‘I Don’t Watch TV’ and ‘Arré Ho Ja Re-Gender’.

Other content from Arré’s stable, which will be made available under the partnership includes a new comic satire titled ‘Abbas Mastan’ about two movie buffs, as well as non-fiction video originals such as‘Death by Breath’, a documentary on pollution in Delhi (in partnership with the Indian Express Group), and ‘Kashmir’s Lost Children’, a documentary about the violence that children in the Kashmir Valley face. These shows will add on to the already established library of original web-series made by SonyLIV.

Uday Sodhi, Executive Vice-President and Head – Digital Business, Sony Pictures Networks India said, “SonyLIV has endeavoured to provide the best and most relevant entertainment options to our viewers, as is being aptly demonstrated by our push for more and more original, user-centric entertainment content.

We are confident that SonyLIV’s massive viewership in the country will enjoy the diversity of entertaining contentwhich this association heralds. our aim is to bridge the gap between the digital audience and relevant original quality content creators.”
