It’s no news that online streaming platforms are the future of entertainment. After international OTT platforms like Netflix and Amazon prime rose to fame, Indians came up with their own OTT Platforms like Hotstar, Voot & ALTBalaji, and they all are gaining immense popularity with each passing day.
And now, Doordarshan is all set to join the race. According to a recent report, Doordarshan is also planning to have its own digital platform, and it is a piece of good news for all the ’90s kids, as they will get a chance to watch their favorite shows like Malgudi Days and Dekh Bhai Dekh once again.
While talking about the same, the director-general of Doordarshan, Supriya Sahu, said:
“OTT is an important platform. Doordarshan is also planning to have its own digital platform where it can put out its content which can be available worldwide. CEOs of Prasar Bharati and Doordarshan are working on a project to evolve an online platform for the viewers.”
He further added:
“We have a huge library of content. Some of our content is iconic. People of India associate themselves with our shows as they have grown up watching such shows.”
He confirmed that Doordarshan will bring back all the iconic shows on their OTT platform. So maybe in the next few months, you might be able to satisfy your inner ’90s kid by reliving those moments, which you spent glued to the television in your childhood. Supriya Sahu further said that when Doordarshan will come out with its OTT platform, they will not release offensive content on it. He said:
“Doordarshan not only follows the code of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, it also has its self-regulatory body which regulates the content and tries not to release offensive content anywhere.”
Well, if Doordarshan’s OTT platform ever becomes a reality, and they do upload all the old shows on it, I am definitely going to binge watch Shaktimaan again. Which old show would you like to watch? Tell us in comments.
