#GhanaGist: First English-dubbed Bollywood channel in Africa, Zee World celebrates its 1st anniversary

Zee World is the first English-dubbed Bollywood channel in Africa.   Parent company Zee Entertainment is present in 169 countries, reaching 960 million viewers globally.  Zee World is available on DSTV channel 166 and Gotv channel 25 available in 44 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

We are thrilled to celebrate our 1st birthday on the 3rd of February 2016.  The channel launched with four successful series Laali, Saloni, Married Again and The Promise and introduced an exciting new line up of cooking shows in May 2015; with the award winning Khana Khazana followed by Snack Attack and Kiddies Treats, that added an exotic flair to dinner parties.   This was followed by gripping Fear Files in July 2015.

Zee World has consistently ranked 2nd amongst its competitors within the Pay General Entertainment Channels.  The ratings have been phenomenally high through-out the year showing the success of the channel and the love for its content by our viewers who resonate with the Zee World brand.

Within the 1st year the channel has secured a split feed; Zee World South Africa available to Southern African countries and Zee World Rest of Africa across East, West and Central Africa keeping our content relevant to each of our viewers in their respective part of the continent and reaching yet another milestone.  This allows us to reach different markets at the same time, giving advertisers the opportunity to market their products and reach their audience in a way that is relevant to them.

To align ourselves with Extraordinary Viewing “The Vow” launches 1st of March 2016 along with six captivating shows which will be announced in April, making sure that we are giving our viewers the best of entertainment.

“We are proud of what we have achieved over the past year.  It gives me immense joy to see the growth and success of Zee World.  We look forward to another successful extraordinary year, says Mr. Harish Goyal, the CEO of Zee TV South Africa.
