Aapka Colors, known as Colors in India, is the flagship Hindi General Entertainment channel of Viacom18.

Top flight reality programs entertain the whole family, including Bigg Boss, Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi, Dance Deewane, and Rising Star. Viewers love the slate of top-rated, drama shows such as Choti Sarrdaarni, Shakti…Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, Barrister Babu, Pavitra Bhagya, Shubharambh, Ishq Mein Marjawan, and the recently launched Pinjara Khubsurti Ka.
Commenting on the launch, Sachin Gokhale, Senior Vice President & Business Head Americas – IndiaCast, said, “Cox Communications fills a big distribution gap for Aapka Colors in key South Asian population-heavy regions in areas of Florida, California, Georgia and Massachusetts, amongst others. We’re excited to join Cox’s already robust line-up of Hindi general entertainment channels with this agreement, which will offer U.S. South Asian audiences a wider range of top rated Hindi entertainment, including Aapka Colors’ incredibly popular new season of long running reality show Bigg Boss, premiering soon.”
