Today, I am happy to see ZEE5 emerge as India’s largest homegrown multilingual platform and the leading global platform for South Asian content representing the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of the region to the world. The journey has been enthralling with many learnings as we strengthened our presence across international and local markets in the last few years, and our teams have a lot to be proud of. The appetite for digital content with advancements in emerging technologies has catapulted the demand for OTT content, paving the way for us to step into our next phase of growth with a robust content-led digital-first strategy.”
On the occasion of the fifth anniversary, Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said, “As a leading player in India’s OTT industry, we at ZEE5 have helped in expanding the contours of entertainment business over the last 5 years owing to the large appetite of Indians for quality content across languages. We, as a customer focused platform, believe in delivering high quality content for consumers, as well as engage with creators that could propel sector’s growth and address the demands of the culturally diverse and discerning audiences. With innovative storytelling, evolved character arcs, compelling narratives and content that transcends all barriers of languages and geographies we have grown remarkably over last 5 years across SVOD and AVOD. Our investments on content development increased significantly as well, as we strengthened our regional presence making inroads into the smaller pockets of India. Charting the next course for ZEE5, we will focus on producing good-quality stories, enhanced viewing experiences, creative collaborations, and increased choices for our viewers.”

We are the No.1 South Asian platform across all international markets including key markets like US, UAE, Australia and Canada, and leading in others like UK. We’ve been trailblazers on multiple fronts in the US, shooting ahead to category leadership in the shortest time. And the biggest testimony of our success is the love we get from our diaspora audiences on the back of our content offering and tech innovations. South Asia is shining today in all spheres, and we look to be at the forefront of this conversation, setting the tone for even more disruptive growth in the next phase.”
