aha is an Indian subscription video on-demand and over-the-top streaming service which offers Telugu-language content. It is owned by Arha Media & Broadcasting Private Limited, a joint venture by Geetha Arts and My Home Group.[3][4] The service was soft launched on 25 January 2020 and launched officially on 25 March 2020, coinciding with Telugu New Year (Ugadi).[5][6][7]

History

Allu Aravind revealed that he was enamoured with the digital environment and developed a habit of binge-watching. Soon he came up with the idea of starting a streaming platform for hosting solely Telugu content. He then discussed the idea with his family, who encouraged him and which led to talks with Rameswar Rao Jupally, who joined as a partner in the venture. Ajit Thakur heads the platform.[7]

Market and expansion

After opting for a soft launch on 8 February 2020 an event named aha Preview was conducted where all the film makers who worked on ''aha Originals'' attended and presented their work.[8] In November 2021, aha announced actor Allu Arjun as its brand ambassador.[9] The platform has acquired one million subscribers within a year of its launch,[10] and by July 2021, it has over 1.5-million paid subscribers and 40-million-plus users, catering predominantly to the markets of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states.[11]

In August 2021, aha launched aha kids, a sub-brand focusing on children's programming. It is scheduled to launch on 10 September, coinciding with Vinayaka Chavithi.[12]

Original programming

The service began its operation by acquring digital rights of films such as Arjun Suravaram, Kaithi (Telugu dubbed version) and Choosi Choodangaane.[7]

Original shows and series

The original scripted content which debuted on the service during the soft launch was Kotha Poradu, Shithappens and Geetha Subhramanyam 2020.[13][14] Masti's created by Krish debuted on 8 February 2020. For the first year, the scripted original content included 25 original shows.[15][16] Talk show Sam Jam with Samantha Akkineni as its host premiered on aha on 13 November 2020.[17] Aha has planning to offer over 50 original shows for the year 2021.[18]
