ZEE5 has been a successful streaming platform in India. Despite its competition from OTT content platforms such as Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, and Amazon Prime Video, ZEE5 has been able to create a unique market space for itself. This happened because the OTT giant focused more on catering to the needs of Indian streamers offering them ‘Hindi’ based content. A new subscription plan ‘ZEE5 Club’ has been launched for the users. It comes for Rs 365. That’s not a monthly subscription fee but an annual subscription fee making it quite cheap.
