Zee Café is an Indian English-language cable and satellite television channel owned by Zee Entertainment Enterprises, a subsidiary of the Essel Group. It was launched on 15 March 2000 as Zee English and is known as a general entertainment channel (GEC).[1] On 27 March 2005, it was renamed Zee Café.[2] The channel mainly syndicates popular American television shows to appeal to the English-speaking population of India.

Current programming

The channel airs a range of different shows including dramas, sitcoms and reality shows.




International distribution

Zee Café launched on Sky in the United Kingdom and Ireland on 15 July 2010.[3] The channel originally served as Zee's network hybrid channel, which used to broadcast shows from a number of its existing channels in India. On 11 September 2012, it was repositioned as a classics channel, airing re-runs of old Zee TV programming,[4] covering cookery, dramas, horror and mythology. At the same time the channel became free-to-air.[5] On 10 June 2013, the British version of Zee Café closed and was replaced by Lamhe, another free-to-air classics channel from Zee.[6]
