Zee5 Subscription Plans & Offers – OZEE TV

Amid all the new video-on-demand services, Zee5 has managed to shine brightly in India with its mass of content in regional languages. It has become the second biggest Over-the-top Media Provider in India by user count. 

Is it Zee5 or OZEE TV ?

Zee5 was earlier OZEE which was launched in February 2016 by Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited. At that time, it consisted of only digital broadcasting of all the Zee channels except Zee Anmol, ETC Bollywood & Living Foodz and 4 original shows. In February 2018, OZEE got rebranded into Zee5 hosting all the Zee Channels, the 4 original shows and creating a diverse portfolio of Zee5 Originals.

One strategy that is to the core of Zee5 is that they make almost each of the Zee5 Originals in at least 6 languages – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Bengali and some of them in English and Kannada as well. This is one of the main reasons they have been able to cater to the Regional Markets as well, where no other OTT have been able to perform till now. Zee5 hosts Movies and Series in total 12 languages and Live TV with over 90 channels and 100,000+ hours of content.
