In the first phase, we are targeting individual consumers with radio, TV and VoD channels on their multi-screen digital devices to offer them exciting content. We will reach consumers through open web and app technologies…
The model supports both targeted advertising and mass-market as well as subscription packages as we build the critical mass. In the second phase, we will be targeting the household staple so that as families gather together in the comfort of their homes wherever they are, they can continue to be engaged on multiple Heart & Soul platforms.
