Then there’s India-based owned by Essel Group. The streaming platform is available as a mobile app on both Android and iOS platforms. The service is also accessible via web and almost all the smart TV brands support the ZEE5 app out of the box.
Previously we shared tips and tricks to use video streaming services like Netflix, Hotstar Disney+ and more efficiently and make full use of them. Today, we are listing down some tips to use the ZEE5 service effectively. Take a look.
Switch content language
ZEE5 offers video content in 12 languages on the platform that include Hindi, English, Marathi, Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, Bhojpuri, and Odia. You can select multiple languages if you want any time or stick to a single language. To change language settings, tap on Menu (hamburger icon at the top left corner) > scroll to bottom > tap on ‘Languages’. You can also go to the ‘Display’ tab from within the Language option to change the language of the app.
Change quality of the video
If you are going to spend the whole day streaming videos, it is better to keep the video resolution (or quality) low to save mobile data. You can also set the quality for downloading the videos. To do so head over to the Menu > scroll to bottom > tap on Settings. Now tap on Quality under ‘Streaming Videos” as well as Quality under “Download Videos” to change the respective resolution.
ZEE5 has curated the content in different tabs for you to easily watch what you want. You will find all the television shows under the “Shows” tab at the Home and all the movies under the “Movies” tab. A whole tab is dedicated to the News, premium ZEE5 content, and ZEE5 Originals.
Watch Live TV
ZEE5 also lets you watch some TV channels live on its platform. You can either scroll over the top bar to reach the Live Channels or tap on Menu > tap on Live TV. You will see all the free channels, Hindi Entertainment channels, Hindi movies, English entertainment, and all other types of channels categorised based on genres.
Premium features and TV Guide
