The Q India service (formerly called The QYOU) will present unique stories from 101India’s diverse content catalogue: from the edgy food show ‘Dinner with the Dons’ to a series on the bourgeoning underground hiphop scene in India, ‘HipHop Homeland’; from celebrating unique love with ‘Love in India’ to celebrating the disappearing communities and cultures of India with ‘101 Traces’.

Commenting on the association, Curt Marvis, CEO and Co-Founder of QYOU Media, said, “ 101India creates the kind of amazing, fresh and creative content that makes us so excited to bring “The Q India” service on TATA Sky to a millennial audience. In one place we are offering the best premium digital first content that India’s top creative talent is making and 101India and their programming embodies that in every way.”

Cyrus Oshidar, Founder and MD of 101India.com said, “We are excited to partner with QYOU Media and to extend our unique content to Tata Sky’s large audience base of 17+ millions of viewers. The millenials are always looking forward to fresh and diverse content and this partnership will help take the best from our online content catalogue to the young TV-watching audience through their Tata Sky subscriptions.”
