Watch Indian TV Shows Online on YouTube [Official]

I’m one of those people who love to do most of the things online, that includes paying my bills, watch indian TV shows and, Watch movies and so on. I have a Airtel Digital TV connection, but honestly I hardly spend 1-2 hr in a week on T.V. I’m not sure if it’s a good habit that all my digital entertainment needs shifted to Internet (YouTube, Hulu, Letmewatchthis) kind of channel, from earlier traditional Cable Tv and now Digital TV. Anyhow, I’m sure all of you, who works online, like to do most of the thing online and here is good news for Indian users who stay in india & even for those who stays outside India (NRI), now you can watch Indian Tv shows online on YouTube.

I’m not talking about those pirated or unauthorized upload, but an official shows page from YouTube, where you can find over 19,000 full episodes of Indian TV shows. Interesting fact is, this shows are not only limited to Hindi shows, but you can watch different Indian Tv shows in other languages (Tamil, Telugu, Bengali,Gujrati & Punjabi).

Watch Indian TV Shows Online
Watch Indian TV Online on Youtube

Some of the famous Indian TV serials like (Balika Vadhu, Bade Acche lagte ho, Ramayan, CID), you can watch complete episode online. Though, most of these episodes were already there but by the individual channel created by respective broadcaster, such as MTV, Colors, SEtIndia and so on.

Links to Watch Indian TV Shows Online on Youtube:

For your reference, I’m also adding links to Individual channels on Youtube, from Sony and other popular publishers, which you can subscribe to and get notification, as soon as they upload latest TV episodes.

Here is direct link to shows page, where you can find listing of all Indian serials and you can watch Indian TV shows by streaming them on Youtube.

For watching shows in regional languages, head over to this page and find your favorite show. Well, it seems like a great initiative but it will be more fun, when we can actually stream all the TV shows at the same time when it goes live on traditional TV. May be, many people like me and who stays online, might not mind paying little subscription fees for the same.

Anyhow, with the evolution of Youtube and online streaming media in last few years in India, I don’t think it will take time before we see Youtube offering subscription based channel for Indian Television. In case, if you are planning to watch CID online, or Balika vadhu online, don’t forget to upgrade your broadband plan to a higher bandwidth package, as only dilemma for Indian broadband users is FUP. (Fair usage policy).

Do let us know, if you like this idea of putting all Indian TV shows on one page (Similar as Indian movies page on Youtube). Will you be shifting to Youtube from traditional TV or will stick to it?
