Zee Alem's content is for everyone, a sentiment echoed by Zee Africa & Indian Ocean Islands Business Head Ratna Siriah “We have consistently brought exceptional Indian content that resonates with our African audiences through in depth research. Zee Alem has been specifically developed for our Amharic family audiences and it will be a compelling addition to the DStv family.”

Zee Alem promises dramatic and thrilling content which will be available in Ethiopia from 22 June 2020 with beloved series such as: The Promise (ቃልኪዳን), Lies of the Heart (ልባዊ ውሸት), Married Again (ፍቅር እንደገና), Ring of Fire (የእሳት ቀለበት) and much more to feature on the channel.
