Google Has 19,000+ Episodes of Indian TV on YouTube Shows

India’s film and TV industry produces a deluge of content every year, and India’s 1.2 Billion people are constantly clamoring for more.  From soapy dramas to gritty documentaries, their entertainment industry has evolved, and as they evolve they are embracing social media and web video like none other.  YouTube announced today on their YouTube blog that they now have 19,000 full episodes of 300 programs in 6 different languages to “YouTube Shows”, a section of YouTube that highlights high quality programming.

The announcement of the shows comes along with an updated “shows” page that looks a little bit like Hulu, and is meant to help viewers more easily track and find the shows they really want to watch.   The new design has a black area at the top that highlights popular shows and lets you browse by various overarching categories like “Movies”, “Music”, “Live”, “Shows” and more.
