Shotformats is providing the platform for Video Talkies for Airtel, and the content is multiple content partners – some from aggregators and others from direct deals, including from UTV New Media (which was the first to launch Audio Cinema, under TN Prabhu).
Currently, Airtel is doing only movies, but they will look at doing TV show summaries.
