Kaplan will assist with the growth of Qyou India, which delivers highly localised and curated digital-first video content via operators including Tata Sky and Jio TV. The ex-Sony exec will also support development of the Qyou brand worldwide.

“Digital-first video content and mobile video consumption are shaking up the entire TV ecosystem due to huge demand from millennial and Generation Z audiences,” Kaplan said.

“India boasts a highly developed TV market and upwardly mobile audience, with viewers showing a huge appetite for new and exciting types of content.”

Curt Marvis, CEO and co-founder of Qyou Media, added: “Over the past year, Qyou Media has built and maintained momentum with Q India. Andy’s appointment is important to shaping the next stage of our growth by offering strategic insight and a deep knowledge of the Indian TV market.”

In March, Lionsgate’s recently retired co-chief operating officer Steve Beeks joined QYou, which operates linear networks, genre-based series, mobile apps and VoD services.
