ZEE TV UK delivered record high ratings since it joined BARB last month, with the screening of blockbuster movie ‘Dangal’, according to exclusive data obtained by BizAsiaLive.com .

The channel had a bigger share than market leader, Star Plus, which fell behind ZEE TV for the first time. Over the past few weeks, Star Plus’ Sunday ratings have dipped, which has brought the overall reach of the channel down.

On Star Plus, ‘Dance+ 3’ at 20:00 pulled in 44,000 viewers, followed by ‘Ek Level Up’ at 22:30 with 10,400 viewers and ‘Chakravyuh’ at 19:00 with 8,600 viewers.
