Outbrain expands reach in India with new publisher partnerships

Outbrain, one of the world’s leading premium discovery platforms, on Tuesday announced the expansion of its publisher network in India. Joining its list of premium publications in India and around the globe are Network18 - with Firstpost, News18 (English) and News18 (Hindi) - and India TV News - with India TV News, Khabar India TV and India TV Paisa.

This latest series of partnerships has added new momentum, heralding new opportunities for publishers and brands across India. This development takes place against a backdrop of steadily rising demand for reaching highly qualified audiences and, on the back of recent initiatives such as Outbrain’s expansion of programmatic access on the AppNexus marketplace.

As a strategic market, India has anchored Outbrain’s regional presence and continues to hold tremendous potential. The performance-driven Discovery platform already counts India.com Group (Zeenews; Bollywoodlife; india.com; dnaindia), The Hindu Group (The Hindu; The Hindu Businessline), and the Indian Express Group (Financial Express; Jansatta; Loksatta) in its network of premium publications. This distribution helps marketers in India build an audience and reach new customers using advanced targeting options via the Outbrain network.
