Commenting on the tie-up, Kunal Dasgupta, Chairman, MSM Discovery, said, “This strategic alliance positions us uniquely for a quantum leap in terms of growth with our complete package of creative, niche channels under One Power Brand, TheOneAlliance. This is indeed ratification that we are the best distribution team in the industry. We have ambitious plans for the company with the addition of Colors.”

Haresh Chawla, Group CEO, Viacom18 Media, said, “With MTV, Nick and Vh1 being a part of TheOneAlliance bouquet as pay channels, we have enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with TheOneAlliance over the last few years.
