New Delhi: It comes as a piece of good news for the ZEE Group as ZEE5 Global on Friday reported that it has seen a huge surge in revenue after it launched a special offer during Diwali, giving 50% discount on their Annual packs.

“The festive season is a very special time when families come together, and we wanted to make this an extra special Diwali for Indians living abroad by giving them even easier access to their favourite shows and movies with such an attractive offer during this festive period,” Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global said.

“The response that we have got has been fantastic across markets and only reaffirms the huge demand for our content. We’re thrilled to have made this Diwali such a memorable one for our audiences across the globe,” Archana further added.

After the introduction of the offer, ZEE5 Global witnessed a whopping 20% growth in total subscription revenues over the period. The offer has seen the maximum traction from markets such as the Middle East, Singapore, Malaysia and the UK, amongst others.

Subscribers availing of the offer now get access to over 100,000 hours of on-demand content across genres, and 60+ live TV channels.

From catching Bollywood’s latest hits like Jabariya Jodi and Dreamgirl, to watching some of ZEE5’s most popular Originals like Kaafir, Fitrat, and Bhram or catching up on their favourite TV shows like Kundali Bhagya or Sembaruthi, viewers now have unlimited hours of entertainment available for them to watch anytime, and on any device of their choice.

As the largest global digital platform for Indian entertainment content, ZEE5 has time and again seen a superb response to the innovative marketing and content strategies they have rolled out in various markets, be it across their multiple on-ground events and partnerships, or across their differentiated Originals and other content.

The surge in the Annual pack subscriptions post this offer only underscores the huge attraction of ZEE5’s massive and constantly refreshed content library, and love for Indian content across markets.
