Jain added, "The most distinctive aspect of Zee-Turners new bouquet will be to fulfill the ever-increasing demand for quality and variety. The new bouquet will provide a major fillip not only to our distribution platform, but also to the 44 million cable and satellite viewers."

"We had been looking at revising our existing bouquet rate for a long time and Trais recent amendment gave us that opportunity. We have also officially informed our cable operators about the revised rates," stated Jain.
