That Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) is looking to launch a new video-on-demand platform is known.

Here's the additional information we just found: Zee will name the new platform Z5. Moreover, Zee's existing VOD platforms Ozee (advertising based) and dittoTV (subscription based, live TV) will be defunct soon, a source at the organisation informs afaqs!.
Z5 will be Zee's way of integrating all its VOD content and putting it onto a single platform.

Z5 is scheduled to be launched later this year and will follow a 'freemium' revenue model, that is, some of its content will be monetised through advertising while some of it will be placed behind a paywall.

In a recent interview with afaqs!, Archana Anand, head of digital, India Z5 business, said, "Today, everybody is chasing the OTT dream, we all believe that tomorrow the ecosystem will be fantastic; advertising and subscription revenue will flow and when it happens, we all want to be there. We all are struggling today and that is because the Indian ecosystem has not reached the optimal point for digital business yet. At the same time, you cannot say that I will enter the business when it's all done. By then someone else will capture the market. Behind all the rosy PR stories, the reality is that survival is really tough for everybody today."

Waiting :sp

Hope it will be available on Fire Stick, OZEE is not available

Edit: Also Episodes should be available in HD. Currently episodes are only in 480p or less. The logo does not have the word HD which is available on Television, looks like they are uploading the print that is telecasted on SD channel

They'll definitely do something good like hotstar. Zee always follows star in well manner. In past too, they followed star from launching channels to revamping the network.

From long time, they wanted to stabilize their OTT business. By this launch even zee tamil, zee Kannada & zee telugu :hd would've launched. So mostly they'll bring most episodes in :hd

I am sure this OTT will also have original content.

The stage was perfect too to unveil a teaser of Zee group’s soon-to-be-launched new digital platform in the form of its logo. The OTT service, to be called Zee5, is a completely refreshed version of the group’s existing digital services and will ultimately subsume with itself the likes of dittoTv and Ozee. Incidentally, the digital platform logo was dedicated to Zee group chairman- founder-promoter and media baron-turned-Member of Parliament Subhash Chandra.

I am quite excited for it. And what does H2 FY18 stands for @shantanu bro.

Second half of financial year 2018.
Financial year is between 1 April to 31 March.

So it'll take maximum 1 year from now.

Hope this one will be a good one. Not useless like dittoTv & ozee p
