MUMBAI: Video on demand (VoD) platform ZEE5 has partnered with Vakrangee to enable offline subscription of its premium content. The partnership will allow ZEE5 to make its service in 3,504 Nextgen Vakrangee Kendras across the country.

Commenting on this partnership, Vakrangee MD and Group CEO Anil Khanna said, “We are happy to partner with ZEE Entertainment to help our customers avail ZEE5 in remote areas. With this partnership, we continue to expand the bouquet of services available at our exclusive Nextgen Vakrangee Kendras making them in to one stop shop for all the requirements of our customers including entertainment.”

This offline to online partnership with Vakrangee Kendra helps with both distribution and accessibility, thus getting more people exposed to ZEE5’s premium content.
