Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd has started its ventures into mobile content. The company has signed a multi-deal contract with Roy Kapur Films (RKF), the house set up by Siddharth Roy Kapur. RKF will put together Jio Originals that will be streamed on the Jio network.
This could be the way to go forward for the streaming platforms in India. The jewels in the crown for Netflix programming are Netflix Originals. Amazon Prime also has its own Amazon Prime Original series.
In fact, RKF films becomes the second content creator that joins Reliance Jio. Earlier, Reliance bought a stake in ALTBalaji, which could have Ekta Kapoor’s brand come on board as a content provider for Jio too
