Setting a new landmark, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) announced its expansion into Latin America with the launch of its Spanish-language Bollywood movie channel, Zee Mundo, in Mexico and Ecuador.

Amit Goenka, CEO, International Broadcast Business, ZEEL, said, “After Zee Mundo’s success in the US Hispanic market, where the channel’s unique offering has captivated viewers, we are now set to increase our footprint with a strategic expansion into Latin America. This is a key market for us and we want to take this channel to the length and breadth of audiences in both Spanish-speaking and Portuguese-speaking Latin America. We are launching our channel on the region’s biggest platforms -- Sky in Mexico and TV Cable in Ecuador and soon we will be expanding across Latin America.”

Sharing details, Rajeev Kheror, President, Strategy, International Business, ZEEL, said, “There is a cultural synergy between India and Latin America, with Indian content and storylines resonating strongly with Latin American values and traditions. With our carefully curated Spanish-language Bollywood channel, Zee Mundo, we aim to deliver a never-seen-before experience with the best of Bollywood movies, telenovelas and series. The channel has already received a positive response among US Hispanic audiences, with viewers finding the variety and quality of content compelling. We wish to deliver a similar experience to our audiences in Latin America with content that is high-quality, unique and entertaining.”
