We carry our entire world in a 5.5-inch device.
Yes, I’m talking about our smartphones. Our phones are our one-stop solution for everything, from reminders to alarms to notes and different applications for booking movie tickets, restaurant reservations, hailing cabs etc. Similarly, our generation is hardly found sitting in front of the idiot box.
There are so many YouTube channels and applications that you can subscribe to and watch TV series like Game of Thrones, Narcos, Suits etc. But in 2016, there are lot of “Desi” web series that are going viral like TVF Tripling, Aadha 24, TVF Pitchers, FilterCopy’s Little Things etc. These shows are definitely for the Indian market.
In this article, we would like to showcase the brains behind the new wave of “Desi” web series.
TVF (The Viral Fever)
TVF was founded by Arunabh Kumar in the year 2010. The idea behind the launch of the network was to reach out to the younger generation who seldom watch television to either pass the time or for entertainment. TVF has covered topics such as Indian politics, movies, lifestyle, social concepts, etc. in their videos.
As of March 2016, the TVF channel has more than 20 Mn subscribers on YouTube. It has now created a separate platform to host their videos called TVF Play where the shows are in English and Hindi.
Owing to its growing popularity with both TVF Pitchers and Permanent Roommates being watched by millions around the globe, they received a funding of $10 Mn from Tiger Global in February 2016.
