DishTV launches Zing Digital - a customized Malayalam DTH brand to cater to the unique needs of Malayalam viewers
DishTV, Asia's largest direct-to-home service provider, has always been at the forefront of development with its path-breaking initiatives. In 2003, when Dish TV, the pioneer in DTH industry, launched India's first DTH service, not many people knew about this technology and how it would change their lives. Now, a decade later, DishTV today announced the launch of "Zing", an exciting New Brand which has been specially conceptualized and customized keeping in mind the Malayalam viewers that are moving over to the digital platform.
The TV viewing needs of Malayalam viewers are very different as compared to the rest of India. No other DTH player till now has been able to cater to these unique needs in a 360 deg manner, being truly local, state specific and even language specific.
