Eros Now inks rev share deal with Ola Play
MUMBAI: Over-the-top (OTT) platform Eros Now has entered into a strategic integration deal with India’s leading mobile app for transportation, Ola Play.
This strategic revenue-sharing partnership through Eros Now subscriptions will enable an immersive and personalised experience which customers can seamlessly control through their smartphones as well as a device mounted at the back of the seat.
Powered by proprietary in-car and cloud technologies from Ola, Ola Play brings advanced car controls, choice of personalised content and a fully-connected interactive experience for its customers. Eros Now offers the widest library of films, music, premium television, and regional content that has the potential to enhance the experience for many Ola customers.
Ola commuters will now have easy access to a vast array of unlimited entertainment options through Eros Now on Ola Play. Content will be customised depending on customer preferences and ride information like time and destination to provide the perfect connected in-car experience. The association particularly adds value to the superior experience proposition of Ola Rental and Ola Outstations categories that are widely used by customers. Long, traffic-filled journeys are now going to be easier rides with Eros Now’s broad selection of entertainment choices on display. The offering is currently available in four cities: Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
Commenting on the integration, Eros Digital CEO Rishika Lulla Singh said, “Connected cars are a reality now in India with Ola Play. We are excited to join hands with Ola as our vision remains to provide easy access to premium experience on-the-go. This strategic integration enables increased user engagement and will help us increase our reach to millions of Ola customers.”
Speaking on the development, Ola Play Sr. Director and Head Ankit Jain said, “At Ola, we are tirelessly working towards enhancing customer experience, Ola Play is a strong step in that direction. In line with such efforts, our association with Eros Now is sure to offer our discerning customers an unparalleled entertainment experience. A boon for our outstation customers who spend hours at a stretch in the cab, they now have an even stronger reason to choose Play on our platform. With partnerships such as these, Ola is well on its way to transform the consumer’s ride experience, giving them the power to control their time spent inside the car, and building an experience that is intelligent, contextual and unique.”
With this association, Ola Play customers will have access to a vast and diverse range of popular movies on Eros Now. Currently, the offering is available in four cities in the country: Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, and Hyderabad.
