Zee Africa is proud to announce the launch of its global English news channel WION on Africa's dynamic new pay–TV network Kwesé TV.  WION will premiere to African audiences in Kwesé TV's current satellite markets on channel 731.

This will be the third channel from ZEE on the KWESE platform which already hosts Zee Bollynova ch#150 and Bollymovies ch#155, both added on 30th January this year.

With its head office in Delhi, WION, which stands for "World is One News" takes its name from the Group's motto, Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (The World is One Family).  The channel aims to bring global news with an Asian perspective.

Headed by an international editorial team, WION has experienced journalists, researchers and analysts with global exposure examining global issues with in-depth analysis. With bureaus in 37 global locations, WION has international reach and multi-cultural staff adding local perspective to every global news story.  WION is the first India based network to have its presence in regions like the UK, USA, China, Russia and Africa making it South Asia's first truly convergent, multi-media English News Network.

Kwesé TV will deliver this exciting new channel to viewers in Ghana, Zambia, Rwanda and Lesotho through its multi-platform broadcast offering which includes linear TV, the Kwesé mobile app, and web streaming services delivering quality news to viewers on the move anywhere, anytime, on any screen.

"With WION, we commit to deliver to the African viewers, authentic information and a local perspective to what is happening in our world today." said Harish Goyal, CEO of Zee Africa.

"A premium news offering is one of the key things consumers look for on television. The addition of WION to our line-up not only grows our news and actuality offering but also adds further diversity to our bouquet," concluded President and Group Chief Executive Officer of Econet Media, Joseph Hundah.
