With this MoU, JioNews has begun to air Bisbo’s animated video explainers across their various verticals. “JioNews will populate our videos in English and eight other Indian regional languages exposing us to JioNews’ vast audience”, said Shakir Ebrahim, the founder of Bisbo India.
“During lockdown, several our news videos started trending on YouTube and a collaboration with a huge digital brand like Jio will only create more awareness for us. We will continue with our focus on combining news and current affairs with animation, making entertaining, yet detailed and analytical content for our users”, he added.
