With over 5.5 million Facebook followers and over 1.1 million YouTube subscribers, Asianet News Digital is one of the fastest growing regional language sites in India.

Our strong presence across the most affluent and vibrant Internet user community of South India lends itself as a partner of choice for users and brands alike.
