ZEE Digital CEO, Rohit Chadda commented, “During the past two years, our entire effort has been focused towards catering to the 450+ million news & entertainment internet audience in India and the results are here for all to see. The future of digital content lies in 3Vs – Video, Vernacular (Languages) and Voice and that’s what our focus has been. Bringing videos to the forefront on the product along with setting up strong video infrastructure has helped us grow from 200 million video views in FY19 to over 2.5 billion video views in FY21. During the 2020 lockdown, we launched OTT apps for Zee News to capitalize on the increased adoption of OTTs. We launched 8 broadcast brands on digital and launched 3 new regional languages – Odia, Punjabi and Urdu on digital to penetrate these markets in depth. As a result, we’ve seen a very strong growth from Video and Vernacular both and intend to continue to focus on the same in the near future.” Also Read - Zee Digital Concludes The Edufuture Excellence Awards With A Successful Virtual Event

Further, it launched digital-only brands in Tamil, Telegu, Malayalam and Kannada to increase its reach in South India.

Commenting on his mobile-first approach, Chadda further adds, “Mobile contributes to 95% of our users hence our entire product roadmap is focussed on mobile first. We launched native mobile apps for 4 of our major brands – our flagship digital brand India.com, our fast growing national hindi news brand Zee Hindustan, our #1 bengali news brand Zee 24 Ghanta and #1 hindi business news brand Zee Business making the content accessible to the end users on the go. At the same time, performance, UI/UX and size improvements in the updates of existing WION and Zee News mobile apps helped them become the highest rated news apps in the World and in India respectively with user ratings of 4.9 and 4.7, respectively on Google Play store. Further, our PWA technology deployment for mobile web has shown tremendous growth in organic web traffic and we plan to extend it to all our brands.”

Recently, ZEE Digital did the largest PWA (Progressive Web App) launch for 13 of its national and regional news brands covering 9 languages to offer seamless news consumption experience on mobile web to cater to low-end smartphone users and users in low bandwidth areas. Earlier this year, India.com launched its new mobile site to provide a more immersive experience to users which resulted in tremendous growth for the brand in terms of monthly active users.

Talking about the substantial advancement in the digital user base and it’s future plans, Chadda says “Last year during the US presidential elections, we did a first of its kind digital-first global launch of our international news channel WION making it available on 4 billion connected devices globally. The brand received tremendous response in the global markets and has seen 90% growth in users over the past 6 months. The growth and increment has been inspiring and is pushing the team every day to come up with incredible ideas to help users to receive easy access to our content. We are confident that the strategies planned for 2021 will continue to fuel Zee Digital’s growth and break new records in this ever-developing Digital domain”.
