Watcho, which launched in April, includes linear TV, video-on-demand (VOD) and time-shifted TV content, as well as providing the facility to upload user-generated content onto the OTT platform. Working with the Kaltura TV Platform will ensure the service can operate across multiple devices, through cloud technology.

Watcho goes way beyond a TV everywhere service providing a personalised TV experience,” said Ron Yekutiel, co-founder, chairman and CEO, Kaltura. “We are proud to be the backbone that powers this new Cloud TV service for Dish TV’s existing subscribers and new users as well and look forward to working closely with Dish TV as Watcho continues to evolve.”

The service will cater for the 23 million subscribers of both DishTV and the merged DTH company d2h, and is also open to new users.

“Watcho is an exciting new offering that caters to the evolving demands of today’s consumers on how they want to consume content,” said Anil Dua, executive director and group CEO, Dish TV India.

“The Kaltura TV Platform combined with our team’s deep expertise has helped us to pace up our TV transformation journey, and today we are thrilled to offer our users a flawless and personalised viewing experience on the device of their choice,” he added.
