To which, Sudhanshu Vats, Group CEO, Viacom18, added, "Online kids content is one of the major white spaces that exists in the country today. Through a dedicated offering within VOOT, called VOOT Kids we had started our journey to create the largest online destination for kids' content in India."

"This vision saw us aggregate content from both within our network brand Nick and outside, to launch with over 7000 videos of kids content. Additionally, this also brings two powerhouses of kids content on a singular platform to bring forth the best viewing experience for our loyal little viewers," he also said.

further explained, "With close to one-fifth of all viewing on VOOT coming in for VOOT Kids already, we clearly have managed to catch the attention of one of the most discerning audiences and the true digital natives. With this multi-year strategic tie-up with Turner India, we are adding to the depth and variety of content for this audience."
In addition to the Turner content, VOOT has its in-house franchises like Dora, Motu Patlu and Spongebob, along with the Nick shows as well as over 7000 new videos on the app and website.
