Star India Chairman and CEO, Uday Shankar, commented:



We are deeply committed to making sure that we continuously widen Hotstar’s offering, and the launch of Republic TV on Hotstar fills a big gap in our portfolio.

Arnab Goswami also revealed that this partnership will take news to another level digitally.

He said:

We are confident of breaking the digital barrier and believe this is the first step as news produced in India goes digital and then global. We believe the coming together of these two exciting brands and services will take news to the 90 million plus viewers on Hotstar every month.
