BBC Studios taps Hooq to bring popular shows like Luther, Maigret and Wolf Hall to India
BBC Studios has inked a content deal with a video-on-demand platform, Hooq.
As part of the deal, Hooq will broadcast BBC dramas like Luther, Maigret and Wolf Hall to Indian subscribers.
According to BBC, as there has been an increasing interest in premium British dramas in India and Asia, it chose Hooq because the platform currently has services in India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Singapore.
Jennifer Batty, chief content officer of Hooq said: “We are always looking out for new content to entertain our subscribers and we are very excited to share with our Indian subscribers these award-winning and highly rated dramas from BBC Studios.
"Our subscribers have come to know and love the content that we constantly bring to them and we will continue to add more hours of exciting and amazing entertainment to keep India Hooq’d."
BBC Worldwide and BBC Studios merged in 2017 to collaborate closely on content.
