Zee5’s 'ATM' promises content anytime, anywhere in one’s language of choice

The ‘Any Time Manoranjan’ campaign will be launched in various languages.


KOLKATA: Zee5 has unveiled its latest integrated marketing campaign – ATM, acronym for ‘Any Time Manoranjan’, to further strengthen the OTT platform’s connection with audiences across the country by offering TV shows, movies, news, and much more for free to its AvoD consumers.

Targeted primarily at the TV viewing audiences across tier-2 cities, Zee5’s ATM will offer viewers the opportunity to consume entertainment anytime, anywhere, and in the language of their choice. Starring popular celebrities Shraddha Arya and Tejashri Pradhan, the campaign will be launched in various languages - Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Bangla.

Zee5 India chief business officer Manish Kalra said, “As India and Bharat’s multilingual storyteller, we have entertained millions of Indians with our diverse gamut of content offerings for the past three years. Through the ATM campaign, we aim to acquire new users and encourage TV watchers to download the Zee5 app for an unmatched experience, using a powerful combination of platform convenience and compelling content. We chose this proposition because the word “ATM” connotes instant accessibility; and we want users to think of Zee5 like an ATM that gives you access to entertainment anytime, a.k.a. ‘Any Time Manoranjan’. Through our ability to deliver multilingual purposeful content across various devices, ecosystems, and operating systems, we want to target the gap between the TV watching audience and OTT users by introducing them to a world of real, relevant, and resonant Indian stories on our platform.”

Zee5 has planned a high-frequency TV campaign across multiple Zee network channels, leveraging prime time spots as well as some new launches like Indian Pro Music League to get maximum reach. The campaign will also be rolled out across owned social media platforms and will drive conversations through influencer marketing to further amplify the proposition. Deepening inroads into Bharat, the platform will target tier-2 and tier-3 towns with clutter-breaking creatives in high-footfall areas and run campaigns across top radio stations in key markets. To highlight the campaign, Zee5 will add ATM messaging in all the featuring banners for tentpole shows to build further recall.

Zee5 has successfully struck a chord with many Indians within the country; last December, the platform clocked in 65.9 million MAUS and 5.4 million DAUS. Its repertoire of content includes Indian and global movies, catch-up content, and live TV, shows, news, music, live events, and much more.
