Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd.

The said pricing is being released without prejudice to ZEEL’s rights and contentions under all petitions pending adjudication before Supreme Court w.r.t. New Tariff Order (NTO) 2.0.

ZEEL currently has 67 channels that come in 11 languages. With a pan India network encompassing a weekly reach of 606 million viewers and weekly consumption of 163 billion+ minutes*; it has one of the highest viewership bases across Hindi and regional language markets, including Marathi, Bangla, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Bhojpuri, Odia, Punjabi and English in the GEC, movies, news, music, lifestyle and HD genres.

Speaking about the new channel pricing, Rahul Johri, President – Business, South Asia, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. said, “ZEEL’s unparalleled success is an outcome of its strong bond with viewers spread across India and the deep relationship it has built with the entire stakeholder community. These extraordinary partnerships have led to our leadership across multiple markets for nearly three decades. We will continue to create value for the entire ecosystem by presenting the most entertaining and highest quality content, enriching national and regional channels and through innovative solutions for revenue monetization. We are confident that post implementation of NTO 2.0, ZEE channels will continue their growth momentum across markets and create higher value for the company.”

Commenting on the announcement, Atul Das, Chief Revenue Officer – Affiliate Sales, said “At ZEEL, we are committed to providing the best entertainment to our consumers. The new pricing regime in 2019 brought in a major shift in the way television was consumed in India. On one hand, it brought in transparency about MRP of channels, while on the other hand it offered freedom to consumers to select channels they wish to watch. With NTO 2.0, consumers will get even more flexibility in selection of channels. We will continue to provide multiple bouquets to consumers across the country at different price points. Premium English channels like Zee Café and &flix will continue to be available in a separate bouquet. Each bouquet constitutes a mix of channels, including GEC, movies, news, music and lifestyle genres. We look forward to working with our Distribution Platform Operators (DPO) partners for a smooth transition.”

Currenlty, ZEEL produces 419 hours of new content every week on an average. Gearing up for the festive season, it has lined up to launch 40 fiction, 20 non-fiction new shows across multiple languages. It will also present 40 World Television Premieres across its channels over the next few months.
