Today Telcos are looking beyond just plain vanilla services. VAS is the buzz word and associating themselves with a game show like Kam Ya Zyaada which is a first of its kind will definitely give boost to its ARPUs (Average Revenue Per User)."

At the launch of the off-air interactive phase of Kam Ya Zyaada, Zee NEtwork creative head Kartik Chintamani said, "Television game shows in India & abroad have been successful because they directly connect with the viewers by nourishing their need for dreams, fantasies, and getting rich quick. I am certain that people will find Kam Ya Zyaada unique, interactive and compelling to participate in."
