According to informed sources the frequencies of programmes and the financial arrangement are yet to be worked out. The content is expected to go on air from January 2002.

Mid-Day Multimedia will be providing the news software for Zee News.

Earlier, Zee Telefilms had shown interest in Mid-Day Multimedia for a strategic alliance involving Zee News. As per the agreement, Zee News will host a time-band on its channel with Mumbai-specific content sourced from Mid-Day group. This would be the first foray into television content for Mid-Day Multimedia, which has a presence in publishing and radio.
