Shemaroo on YouTube

Shemaroo claims that it was clocking almost 550 million monthly views on YouTube by the end of December 2017, up substantially from around 400 million by the end of September. At the end of June, this number stood at 350 million and had risen to 400 million at the end of September.

The company also claims to have crossed 5 million subscribers on its primary Youtube channel ShemarooENT, which it crossed 2 billion cumulative views for last quarter.

It said it crossed 2 billion cumulative views on its YouTube channel FilmiGaane.

The company reiterated that “Some brands have pulled their advertising out from YouTube since some of their ads were shown next to hateful and offensive content. As a result, YouTube has implemented stricter brand safety guidelines and therefore the overall monetisation of content on Youtube has been impacted.“

Last quarter, it had said something similar, albeit that YouTube had “stopped monetizing certain videos”, instead of “the overall monetisation of content on Youtube has been impacted.”

Content Deals

During the quarter, Shemaroo signed content deals with Vuclip and Spuul.
