ZEE Cinema UK has equipped itself with some major Bollywood movie titles to lure in new viewers when it enters the Sky Original Pack from Tuesday 1st August, BizAsiaLive.com can confirm.
The biggest movie titled will be the all-time blockbuster ‘Dangal’ (pictured) starring Aamir Khan, which will air twice during primetime. The other blockbuster ‘Raees’, which released in January, will also be shown on the channel, along with the first screening of ‘Half Girlfriend’. Other recent movies such as ‘Naam Shabana’, ‘Dear Zindagi’ and ‘Kahaani 2’ will also form a part of the channel’s August schedule – many of which, will air for the first time to all Sky subscribers.
ZEE Cinema, along with a number of Asian TV channels will for the first time be available to all Sky subscribers, in a move that will put the big Asian TV networks on the same level. Previously, ZEE Network, Sony Pictures Networks and B4U Movies have been available in a extra subscription package, while Star TV has been available to all Sky subscribers – now all channels will be available in the Sky Original Pack, with less free channels being offered.
