Back in 1992, as the country was going through some extraordinary times, there was another event that changed the media and entertainment landscape forever in India.
Dr. Subhash Chandra, one of India’s leading entrepreneurs, launched Zee Telefilms Limited, and Zee TV, India’s first Hindi satellite channel, with a vision to create a platform that would converge media and communications and help viewers find a mirror that is relevant to the changing times
Over the years that followed, we grew from an Indian television broadcaster into a global content company, and expanded our footprint from South Asia to almost the whole world. Small and sure steps that helped us set off on our extraordinary journey to become one of the leading media and entertainment powerhouses in the world.
