With this expansion, Shemaroo will reach around 29 telecom providers across Southeast Asia, SAARC, and the MENA region.

Shemaroo Entertainment, a media and entertainment conglomerate, takes a significant leap in its expansion in the global telco, ISP (Internet Service Provider), and OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) landscape by collaborating with four international telecom operators to extend its OTT platform, ShemarooMe.
