Aakash EduTV Sees Soar In Subscribers Amid Widening Digital Divide
Launched by Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL), test preparatory services, in October 2020, Aakash EduTV has seen a 66 per cent and 44 per cent growth in active subscribers and new subscribers base, respectively, since April 2021.
Education may have gone online during the pandemic. But not every student has access to it, thanks to the wide digital divide in India, where over two-thirds of the households do not have any access to the internet. Interestingly, what comes to the aid of the students now is the humble television seeing the soaring subscribers base of Aakash EduTV, an education TV available on Airtel DTH, dedicated to coaching students for school exams and medical and engineering entrance exams.
Aakash EduTV offers live lectures, recorded live lectures for revision, doubt clearance, motivational lectures, NEET and JEE tips and tricks, previous paper discussions, among others, proving to be a lifeline for school students from Class 9 and for those who prepare for medical and engineering entrance exams. Aakash EduTV also offers career counselling programs.
