It had also acquired the digital telecast rights to UK-based Daehan Drama’s popular comedy web series, ATtheCOUNTER.

It had partnered with ONE Network Entertainment, an online video creator, talent aggregator, branded content producer, for the same. In February nexGTv tied-up with #fame to integrate its content on its streaming platform.
As a part of the deal, #fame will create and premiere content exclusively on nexGTv before publishing it on other channels.
