The fresh shows of brand new entertainment channel &TV have proved to be a huge success with the UK audience. The channel has taken the 3rd top position amongst General Entertainment Channels with its weekly reach touching almost half a million within the first week of its launch.
Shah Rukh Khan’s magnetic charm has been a huge draw to the channel with his weekday game show at 9pm India Poochega Sabse Shanaa Kaun gaining a consistent audience. The channels’ weekend shows Killer Karaoke - Atka Toh Latkah, a singing show with a twist and Tujhse Naaraz Nahi Zindagi are also set to grab the nation’s interest.
With multi-dimensional content and a strong line-up of fiction and reality shows &TV has caught the intrigue of avid viewers. The first week had a full range of the channel’s shows getting sampled – from the fiery action of Razia Sultan - the story of the first woman emperor of the Delhi Sultanate to Bhaghyalakshmi - a simple story of an ambitious young girl who aspires to chase her dreams and the comedy of Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai. Most triumphant in the first week has been the show which has had heads turning and people talking – Gangaa – where a feisty little girl has won hearts with her story of a young widower.
The content offering of &TV is contemporary and contextual, depicting the progressiveness in the mind-set of the viewers. This has been reflected in the viewers tuning in, with 54% being 25-44 years old. The channel is also not leaving any stones unturned with its pledge to bring the most popular Bollywood blockbusters to TV – with this Sunday seeing Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express getting the channel’s peak audience reach of 55,000.

We are looking forward to seeing the audience rise in the coming weeks.”
