Lifestyle | Lifestyle TV Channel
Launched in September 2007, GOODTiMES is India's youngest lifestyle & entertainment television channel. The channel has rapidly drawn its target audience of socially upbeat, well-travelled, cosmopolitan viewers who want to live in style, admire fashion, are adventurous about food and travel and want more out of every moment in life with both back-packing and high flying budgets. GOODTiMES presents world-class, aspirational lifestyle programming that advocates living large - giving its viewers affirmative mantras for how to enjoy FOOD, ADVENTURE, WEDDINGS, FASHION & STYLE. The lineup of shows covers every aspect of the lifestyle genre to portray and cater to an increasingly global India.
The channel’s tag-line #DesiAtHeart, integrates and recognizes digital as a part of the channel's DNA and the fact that even though we have travelled the world, sampled the most unique global cuisines, recognized the most internationally celebrated designer brands, we are all somewhere still very Desi At Heart! While it exemplifies what the channel stands for, it is also a call to action, as it encourages the GOODTiMES viewers to be vocal for local which is the need of the hour! With this vision in mind, GOODTiMES has expanded its reach on the digital domain with its younger and edgier avatar – www.mygoodtimes.in (their website) and @mygoodtimes (their social handle) which have grown exponentially in the last few months as more & more people are consuming online content.
Having been in this business for over a decade, GOODTiMES constantly exudes a new outlook, fresh energy and significant content that suits the changing needs of their audiences.
