IPL 2023 LIVE Streaming: Viacom18’s WAR CRY, claims streaming will be bigger than IPL LIVE broadcast on STAR SPORTS

Viacom vs Star IPL Covrage: The split in the IPL media rights created quite a stir in the media industry. Jayaraj shared that Viacom18 Sports would be providing 24×7 access to fans with the option to watch their favourite moments in their preferred language.

The telecast will be in 16 to 18 unique feeds, thus removing the third barrier – language.

“We believe that consumption can go up dramatically if we can crack these three values. Of course, we’ll add a few other features like multi-cam,” said Jayaraj.

“We have ensured that we can take care of virtually any capacity because India has got 700 million internet users. We now have enough seeding capacity. In addition to enhancing capacity, we have built other links, which ensure that there is no breakage anywhere in the system. We have built the largest tech team possible and also partnered with people who really know how to solve some of these issues.”

When asked if TV and digital were being sold together, Jayaraj disclosed, “We are seeing a lot of demand on digital but not as much on TV, owing to the shift in the increased consumption and engagement on digital. In line with that, we are prioritizing digital over TV.”

He further added, “Our intent is to build a consumer base, which is diverse, where we can get people to come in and view the products that they would like. That’s the reason we have gone for a variety of sports. We have been quite deliberate in choosing to buy rights that we believe we can monetize. But the idea is very much about building a large portfolio of sports on the back of which we can build a large consumer bass.”
