- About Zoom TV
Today, there are approximately 3.6 billion Bollywood fans on earth, a number that continues to grow even as you read this.
Now, let us introduce ourselves.
We represent Bennett, Coleman & Co. Limited, the flagship company of one of India’s most respected media conglomerates: The Times Group. Launched in 1838, we started off as a newspaper titled The Bombay Times and Journal of Commerce. This changed to The Times of India in 1861.
By 1952, we had launched India’s first film magazine in English. By 1959, we had the country’s first women’s magazine in English. A long, successful process of diversification was set in motion. Soon after 1991 — when the BBC featured The Times of India among the world's six great newspapers — we moved into the music market, launched an extremely popular portal online, entered music retailing, and started a radio broadcasting business.
Sometime in 2004, The Times Group launched India’s first glamour and entertainment television channel devoted to the Bollywood phenomenon. They called the channel zoOm. That’s us.
The Web site you happen to be at showcases the best of what the channel has to offer, of course, but it also has a whole lot more. A little browsing will reveal exclusive downloads, interesting polls, some fun Bollywood quizzes, and amazing features like our zoOm Maps — letting you track the homes of the stars — and Flower Power, which lets you send your favourite stars floral tributes.
