Company background

Zee Entertainment Enterprises (ZEEL) is a major Indian media company, with services including Hindi news and entertainment channels. The company says it distributes content to more than 160 countries and has over 700 million viewers worldwide.

Zee was founded by Subhash Chandra, who was originally involved in the trading and export business. He established Zee Telefilms in 1992 and started broadcasting India's first Hindi satellite channel; the company was renamed Zee Entertainment Enterprises as part of a restructuring in 2006.

A partnership with media tycoon Rupert Murdoch's News Corp -- prior to the U.S. company's own restructuring -- helped the company grow.

Recently, ZEEL has added more sports and kids channels. Promotor companies own nearly 40% of ZEEL.
