ZEE TV has confirmed that it is seeking carriage on the

UK’s digital terrestrial platform. Sanjay Pathak, head

of marketing for ZEE TV in the UK, told Pay-TV Today,

“Yes we are, and we are on the verge of signing a

contract.” However, he declined to say with which

company the deal would be signed, ONdigital or SDN, to

both of whom spare capacity is at a premium.

Although Pathak said it was “very difficult to say how

many new subscribers we can get from this move,” he was

upbeat, adding, “But it is worth our while to go onto

this platform so we are doing it.” Information courtesy
