The business that started with the beaming of a Hindi language television channel, watched by less than 10 million people in India, has grown into a truly global M&E conglomerate with a reach of over 1.3 billion. We entertain our audiences with content in 21 languages through almost every platform that is available today. Over the last 25 years, we have strived to piece together different elements of the mosaic that is entertainment.
We have focused on continually evolving ourselves to satisfy the diverse and ever-changing entertainment and consumption preferences of our viewers. Today, the brand Zee, with its five business verticals, is synonymous with ‘entertainment for all’ and is the preferred entertainment destination for audiences in India and around the world.
ZEEL was the first Indian content company to foray into international markets, starting as early as 1995. Over the last 22 years we have built a formidable presence internationally, making us a truly global content company.
With a portfolio of 39 Indian language channels, 13 non-Indian language channels and digital platforms, our content reaches over 570 million people outside India in 170+ countries. While the International Business harnesses the rich content library produced in India, we also produce content locally in some of these markets. This helps us create locally-relevant content and establish a stronger connect with the consumers. Furthermore, with key partnerships and content syndication, we are able to reach an even larger audience via third-party platforms. The International Business consists of the broadcast, digital, syndication and movie distribution.
