Rajya Sabha TV has added another feather to its cap at the beginning of 2020. RSTV’s YouTube channel crossed 4 million subscriber-mark earlier today.
One million people subscribed to the channel in less than six months. That averages out to nearly 6,000 people joining the YouTube channel daily.
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday complimented Rajya Sabha TV and its staff after the public broadcaster crossed 40 lakh subscribers on YouTube.
With this, the RSTV is now among the top 10 news channels in the country in terms of YouTube subscribers base, adding many leading news channels are behind it.
In a series of tweets, Vice President Naidu said he is “delighted to note that RSTV on Thursday crossed 4 million mark on YouTube”.
The Upper House chairman said that from a subscriber base of 4.5 lakh in August 2017, the RSTV increased its base by a remarkable 888 per cent in the last 29 months.
“It speaks for the channel’s fast-growing appeal as an informative and educative platform. It also indicates viewers’ hunger for the right content and sombre presentation. I compliment all concerned for this achievement,” he said.
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has congratulated all the professionals for the feat.
