Big Magic, Big Ganga now available on ZEEL’s Ozee

MUMBAI: Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEEL) has added Reliance Broadcast Network’s general entertainment channels (GEC) Big Magic and Big Ganga on its VoD platform Ozee.

Subscribers to the OTT platform will now have access to the shows featured on Big Magic such as ‘Akbar Birbal’, ‘Phir Yeh Nadaniyaan Akbar’, ‘Baal Krishna’ and ‘Big Memsaab’. They can also enjoy shows from regional Bhojpuri channel Big Ganga such as ‘Biraha Muquabla’, ‘Prabhu Sang Preet Lagaye’, ‘Buddha’ and ‘Litti Chokha’.

The development comes as part of ZEEL’s acquisition of RBNL’s TV business last year. The company expects the acquisition of RBNL’s TV broadcasting business to be complete by the second quarter of FY18. Upon conclusion of the transaction, RBNL’s two channels—Big Magic and Big Ganga—will form part of ZEEL’s portfolio along with four television broadcasting licences.

Recently, ZEEL also revealed plans to revamp its OTT business, comprising dittoTV (subscription-based model) and Ozee (ad-focused model), by the second half of FY18. A strategy is being worked out to push this business segment.
