Under the partnership, Airtel Digital TV will add two dedicated DTH channels for the students across India.

The company also has plans to add regional language content, where possible. Moving on, the company says that it will provide 11 hours of fresh interactive content on a daily basis to students. Students can also revise the content with repeat telecast. The classes will also include interactive quizzes to which students can respond to using the TV remote.
Commenting on the partnership, Sunil Taldar, CEO & Director – DTH Business, Bharti Airtel, said: “We are delighted to partner with Vedantu to democratise high-quality education by making it highly affordable and accessible through the home TV.
