Hum TV won't be uploading Aangan on YouTube and people are not happy

According to the grapevine, the drama is being pitched to Netflix
29 Dec, 2018

Hum TV's latest experiment Aangan opened last week to rave reviews complete with critically-acclaimed performances.

Ahsan Khan and Sonya Hussyn's love story had many rooting for them while everyone couldn't wait to see Sajal Aly, Ahad Raza Mir and Mawra Hocane's story arc. But Hum TV had a not so pleasant surprise for its fans.

On Monday, the network announced on their Facebook page that Aangan will not be releasing on YouTube and will only be aired on their channel every Thursday.

The post did not bode well with Aangan fans who immediately responded with their disapproval.

But it was when Aangan's second episode aired on Thursday and didn't make its way to YouTube that fans became enraged.

People are just not having it

They feel betrayed

For those overseas, this is a big deal

A revolution is on the way

It feels like a breakup really

"Boy, bye" vibes

Rumour has it, Aangan is aiming for Netflix

And while that may sound exciting...

... fans don't care

The rage is real

But it looks like fans have a plan

It is a business and hum have made a business decision .Those who miss this show at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday may watch again if hum decides to repeat it within a fixed period of time these plays cost money and hum has to recovery so that artist could be paid as well.

@Ifran Ul Huq And you think Youtube does not make them money. You will be surprised how much money Youtube makes for them and for much longer than they can ever imagine.

No problem with HumTv trying to get a drama serial on Netflix, but don't know if this approach of suddenly informing fans about not putting it on Youtube is very well thought out. The audience for this serial is mainly in Pakistan, India and the desi diaspora. Youtube is a big part of that. They could perhaps try this with another original drama made for Netflix? I think this approach might backfire on HumTV, and this drama deserves better.

This decision will only boost piracy and nothing else

Releasing it on Netflix makes no sense. Only South Asians watch it. Plus a 24-30 episode tv show will put off foreign viewers.

Not a problem, they are thinking it is too good to be on the u tube, but I feel the hype created around the production in question has gone overboard.
