|Following the launch of Zee Telugu and Kannada, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (Zeel) has launched its third channel Zee Tamizh in the South. The channel which hit the airwaves on Sunday, 12 October, will fight with 25 plus other Tamil language channels.|
|The channel has lined up serials, game and reality shows, music programmes, cultural shows and movies along with three news bulletins everyday.|
|Zee Tamizh business head V Chandrasekaar said, “The channel would have the right mix of entertainment and news content. The channel had a good library of movies and the broadcasting rights of 40 per cent of the Tamil films released this year so far had been secured.”
The channel will have Kushboo’s Rudra, K Balachander’s Sollathaan Ninaikkiraen, Azhangana Rakshasi and Avalukendru Oru Manam, apart from Tamil version of Sa Re Ga Ma.
Zee Tamizh, a pay channel, will be available in Dish TV and multi-system operators (MSOs) and government-owned Arasu Cable TV Corporation. The channel, however, is not available on Maran-owned Sumangali Cable Vision (SCV), the dominant MSO in the state.
