→ Star India to acquire broadcast business of Maa TV



MUMBAI: Star India and Maa Television Network have announced a deal under which Star India will acquire the broadcast business of Maa TV. This opens up an opportunity for major creative content innovation in the Telugu television market.

The acquisition would give Star India access to the highly attractive Telugu TV market (the second largest regional market in India in terms of revenue potential), where it has a very limited presence till date.

Maa Television Network is the number one broadcast network in Telugu language content and has a strong trajectory of growth driven by fiction content and movies.

The strategic deal will come into effect upon complying with the necessary regulatory formalities and the broadcast business of Maa TV will be integrated with the business of Star India, once the policies and procedures in the acquired broadcast business of Maa TV are aligned with those at Star India.

With the expansion into the Telugu market Star looks to continue its tradition of innovation in content, building on the strong track record established by the team at Maa Television Network.

“The Telugu market is an important market however the pace of innovation has been slow. We are keen to change this by acquiring a local presence and fundamentally changing the content quality paradigm. We were very impressed by the solid creative core and quality and depth of the management team at Maa Television Network. In a short span of time they have built a leading business which is poised to take the next leap.

The acquisition fills a vital gap in our portfolio allowing our advertisers targeted access to a critical market,” said Star India CEO Uday Shankar.

“The strategic decision to align with Star India and be part of a global media group will be a big leap in our efforts to take the Maa TV Network to the next level and strengthen the positioning of Maa brand in the entertainment industry. Star’s leadership in Indian media and entertainment industry and its parent company’s proven expertise in media business on global scale will enable Maa to offer more innovative, rich and differentiated entertainment content to the Telugu Diaspora worldwide,” added Maa Television Network chairman Nimmagadda Prasad.

“We see a lot of synergies and complementary strengths emanating from the strategic deal and it will be a win-win proposition for Maa and Star.

Telugu TV viewers will stand to gain significantly from this initiative through greater access to a wide variety of qualitative entertainment content,” Prasad concluded.

Maa TV, the prime entertainment channel in Telugu, will now become part of the Star TV Network. An agreement was reached on Wednesday between the Maa TV and the Star Group. Maa group has offloaded some of its shares to the Star Group. This has facilitated the entry of Star group into Telugu entertainment sector.

"Till now we did not have Telugu operations. With this agreement, we will now have Telugu operations too," said Star group's Udayasankar.
He termed the business arrangement as Super Alliance. He said Maa Brand will now become Star.
He however said that the Maa promoters will continue on the board, while the Star will only takeover the broadcast business..
Giving details of the agreement, industrialist and Maa group's Nimmagadda Prasad said the agreement will come into force once the regulator permissions are obtained.

Maa TV's promoters Allu Aravind, actor Nagarjuna, Chiranjeevi were also present on the occasion.
