ErosNow, the digital video streaming platform of Eros International, announced that it has crossed 30 million registered users as of September 30. For the quarter ended June 30, the company had reported 26.5 million users. It's worth noting that Eros does not disclose monthly active users and the revenues earned from the digital service.

Following investor calls to focus on their digital platform in June, Eros has been beefing up its digital offerings. In July, Eros announced that it would produce three original shows which would be streamed on its video on demand platform Eros Now. It also mentioned that Eros Now would premiere some of its recent Bollywood releases on the digital platform first and then on TV. At the same time, Eros has tied up with Anil Kapoor Film Company to co-produce an Indian adaptation of a popular international sitcom.
