Our first locally produced drama series for Middle East viewers called Parwaaz got us record viewership last year. Similar experiments for content with a local connect is what differentiates us from the other South Asian broadcasters and makes us the preferred choice of our viewers. We manage to capture the attention and elicit delight and interest from every segment of viewers, with offerings in every genre. News, Entertainment, Infotainment, lifestyle, we cover it all comprehensively. Our alliance with YuppTV to offer Zee bouquet of channels to subscribers in the Middle East is both exciting and enriching.

It is our firm belief that our offerings will be highly appreciated and viewers will enjoy the channels and their content as we create programmes of specific interest to please our various segments of audiences.”
