We are proud to announce ‘The EPIC Channel Twitter Alarm’ for the first time in India. Twitter has been excellent in facilitating the innovation. The core idea of our Campaign is to drive tune-ins to the 10 pm times lot on the channel.The Twitter Alarm fits in perfectly with the campaign.”


The EPIC Channel Twitter Alarm idea was conceptualized and executed by Grey Group India. Sunil Lulla, Chairman and MD of Grey Group India commented, “At GREY Group, we are constantly looking at creating, ‘Famous & Effective’ campaigns for our clients. This makes it imperative to step beyond the boundaries and create - even if it is something as simple as a ‘Twitter Alarm’. We hope that soon enough, India will need no reminder to tune into The EPIC Channel at 10 PM.” 


Aiming to build a high level of engagement with its audience, the Twitter Alarm will let fans set an alarm for their favorite Epic shows through Twitter. One has to then just sit back, relax and enjoy the show … at 10!
