For most youth today music is a lifeline and BIG CBS Spark, in keeping with the needs of its Gen Next viewers, is coming out with some of the hottest and power-packed music-based shows. In its endeavour to sharpen the channel’s musical offering, the channel brings music based shows – Hip Hop MCs, Indie Rock Mania and Hot Hitz for its young audiences.


Apart from urban-international music, BIG CBS Spark will also introduce fresh Indian music blocks ranging from hip-hop, rock, pop, folk, world, brass, chamber music, latest hits and more. The music segments will complement the existing shows like Cheaters, Max, Smash Cards, Oblivious and Real TV.


In connecting with its audiences on ground, BIG CBS Spark will also feature college festivals, music concerts, youth fests, music launches and the likes. The channel will also offer a platform for young and upcoming artists to be showcased on the channel.


With the youth as their audiences, the channel will see heavy use of social media to connect with audiences and already has in place a series of communications on the digital platform to engage with them.


The sharpening of music content also comes from a deep understanding and in-depth research of what the audiences seek for entertainment. In gearing for digitization which is in the anvil, the channel is ensuring that it caters to the requirements of quality and variety for audiences while offering a value proposition to its operator-partners. This new offering compliments Reliance Broadcast Network’s recently launched ‘Choose Your Set-Top-Box Wisely’ campaign, which is designed to increase awareness and empower consumers with adequate information to make the right choice while choosing their set top boxes, while also enabling operators to build their brand equity.


A joint venture between Reliance Broadcast Network Limited and CBS Studios International, BIG CBS Networks has changed the way English language television entertainment is served to Indian audiences. The JV launched 3 English language entertainment channels, marking not just RBNL’s, but the Reliance Group’s entry into the television broadcasting space and CBS Corporation’s channel entry into India.


The themed channels targeted at India’s fast-growing, upwardly mobile population are BIG CBS Prime, BIG CBS Spark and BIG CBS Love.
Reliance Broadcast Network Limited has a multi-media play in the spaces of Radio, Television, Intellectual Property, Out of Home and Television Production, and specializes in creating & executing integrated solutions for clients, across the country.
