Zee Digital launches online streaming platform OZEE


Zee Digital, the digital arm of Zee Entertainment, has launched a new video on demand (VoD) platform called OZEE, reports DNA. The platform is currently live on desktop browsers, with an Android app expected to launch soon.

OZEE will stream movies, TV shows, videos and music. It currently lists over 350 movies, most of them old Hindi and regional movies; various videos including trailers, recipes, award shows etc.; and TV shows which are aired on Zee. As for music, the platform lists entire movie albums which are available as music videos. Interestingly, Zee mentions that it will make TV shows available on the platform ‘within minutes’ of airing on TV.

As of now, users can use the platform for free, and don’t even have to login to view content. Overall the structuring of the website and its lack of a login requirement makes it feel a little like YouTube.

Note that Zee is pretty late to the show. Competitor Star India launched its video streaming service called Hotstar in January last year, while Sony launched its video streaming service called SonyLiv back in 2013. Hotstar began expanding internationally last month.
