MUMBAI: ZEE has, over the years, emerged as the cultural ambassador of India to the world, taking its rich and engaging content to diverse 1.3 billion audience, said ZEEL CEO – international broadcast business Amit Goenka during the celebration of the channel's completion of 25 glorious years.

In the history of India, 2 October is a landmark day as it is the birthday of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. On this momentous day, way back in 1992, India also witnessed the birth of satellite television with the launch of the first Hindi satellite television channel, Zee TV from the stable of Zee Telefilms Ltd., now ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL). This year, ZEE Entertainment, which has evolved from an Indian television broadcaster into a media and and entertainment conglomerate, has completed 25 years of bringing the best of entertainment content to viewers in India and across the world.

Essel Group and ZEE chairman and Rajya Sabha MP Dr. Subhash Chandra said, "Zee TV had led to the commencement of a new industry which not only generated employment for 50 lakh people but also gave a new direction to India. We started with a single resolution to provide entertainment, and today, we share this happiness with 1.3 billion viewers across 173 countries, in 19 languages. 

Under the leadership of Punit and Amit, ZEE will always work towards new technology and concepts so as to provide its viewers with the best of entertainment.”

Sharing his views on this milestone, ZEEL MD and CEO Punit Goenka said, “On 2 October, 1992, our chairman Dr. Subhash Chandra launched the nation’s first private satellite television channel. The industry today stands at an estimated size of Rs 588 billion. As consumer preferences shift and evolve, our aim at ZEE, is to anticipate the change, embrace the new and continue to lead by innovation.”

Amit Goenka said, “ZEE forayed into the international business in 1995 with the launch of Zee TV in the UK. ZEE has emerged as the cultural ambassador of India. Our vision for the future is to become the world’s leading global content company from the emerging markets.”
