ZEE viewers maybe surprised to see the recently launched news channel South Asia World (SAW) to be available free since yesterday.

ZEE Network has unencrypted the channel and made it free-to-air for viewers who subscribe to the ZEE channels. South Asia World can be found on Sky Digital EPG 540. The channel remains encrypted for non-ZEE subscribers and can be purchased at the regular price of ?4.99 per month.

The latest move is being described as a gift from the ZEE camp with many more surprises under its belt as it gears up for the festive season. A full list of programming and films acquired for the Diwali and Ramadhan period will be published on Biz Asia in the coming days.
