Vodafone Idea Limited has inked a partnership with story publishing platform Firework to introduce Stories format to its users and leverage the massive content repository from Firework. The Silicon Valley based company has content from global content studios and will allow Vi to access unique occupational generated content (OGC) creators who are expert story tellers across a wide genre of subjects.
“We provide an array of content from multiple OTT players varying across genres like Live TV, Movies and Web Series in multiple languages on Vi Movies and TV app. Vi is excited to be the 1st Telco to partner with Firework for powering the most trending short videos, specially curated for Vi customers. The format is designed to entertain you in “30 seconds” across various categories and interests. Mobiles have become the preferred screens for entertainment and the average time spent on watching short videos is significantly higher than long-form content, demonstrating that the engagement levels provided by short videos remain unparalleled. Through our partnership with Firework, Vi subscribers will get a wide choice of trending stories across genre and languages.”
