MUMBAI: Bobbles.tv, the German provider of pay-TV packages for expats in Europe, has launched an entertainment platform for Indian viewers. The platform currently offers 16 TV channels from both, Hindi and English languages.

It includes Bollywood blockbuster channels B4U Movies, B4U Music, Star Gold, Sony Max, Zoom as well as news channels NDTV India, NDTV 24×7, Times Now and Aaj Tak. Colors, Star Plus, NDTV Good Times, NDTV Spice, Sony Entertainment Television (SET), Sony Sab, Life Ok and Rishtey Europe will deliver general entertainment, comedy, drama, lifestyle, reality TV and made-for-TV movies.

Bubbles Media CEO Arnold C. Kulbatzki is very optimistic with this offering. He said that as many as 1.5 million Indian people living in mainland Europe now have a convenient way to receive their favourite TV shows from home, via satellite or OTT, live or on catch-up.

Launched in August 2016, bobbles.tv distributes channels from around the globe, aiming to reach a potential audience of around 14 million people originating from Asia, Latin America and Africa, but currently living and working in Europe.

In addition to its new offering for Indian viewers, bobbles.tv also delivers programming to Chinese, Indonesian and Vietnamese expat communities, with further language packages to follow.

The DTH platform is available in Europe via Astra. Supported by MX1, the technical services subsidiary of Astra satellite operator SES, it also offers an OTT service for online viewing through connected TV sets or mobile devices.
