The website also has an app, ZEE5 App.[2]

The platform also provided the first Tamil web series in 2018 with the title America Mappillai.[3][4] In the same year, the platform also introduced another web series titles, Kallachirippu which was produced by popular filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj.[5][6] and Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone, a biographical web series on Sunny Leone.

The service has been launched everywhere except for United States, because of Dish Network's clause in the contract ZEE has with the sattelite provider, which is the major provider for Indian channels in the country[7].
