The channel, owned by Rewind Networks, delivers classic TV shows from the U.S. and the U.K., with a lineup that includes Mind Your Language, Diff’rent Strokes, Small Wonder, Sherlock Holmes and more.

Avi Himatsinghani, CEO of Rewind Networks, said, “We are really happy and excited to be associated with Jio to launch HITS and bring a hand-picked selection of the superhit Hollywood and other favorite U.K. TV shows of all time to their subscribers. I am certain that these shows will stir up happy memories and will be thoroughly enjoyed today as good stories transcend time. HITS has been topping the charts in other Asian markets and we are confident that the service will be equally loved and well received by the 400 million-strong Jio family.”
