After launching a series of regional news channels, Zee Media Corporation is planning to bring English language news channels.
One of the Zee Media Corporation official on the condition of anonymity told CQ that we are planning to launch the channels by this fiscal year, probably by the end of the year. However he did not revels definite launch period.
It must be noted that the news broadcaster has been planning to launch an English news channel and an English business news channel for quite some time now. The market dynamics, however, did not support the launch of these channels.
The English news channel has four major players including Times Now, NDTV, CNN-IBN and Headlines Today while the English business news space has CNBC TV18, ET Now, NDTV Profit and Bloomberg TV India. Zee Media already runs a Hindi news channel Zee Business that competes with CNBC Awaaz.
