Zee Alwan marks the first time that some of India's most popular television serials are brought to the Middle East in Arabic. The move builds on the growing popularity of Bollywood in the Arab world as well as the strong and historic cultural links between the Arab world and India, with Indian family serials set to appeal to Arab audiences.

Zee Alwan is known for its diverse programming, which not only includes dubbed Indian serials but also popular shows on cookery, health and fitness, and travel features, among others, Bollywood films and shows subtitled in Arabic, American shows subtitled in Arabic, English shows subtitled in Arabic, Turkish movies and series, Croatian series, and Serbian series dubbed in Arabic. A number of Arabic serials and shows, produced and set in the Arab world, are also aired.

Social mediaEdit

Due to Zee Music and Zee TV both having over 50 million subscribers, Zee Alwan has 3.16 million subscribers on its YouTube channel. Unlike Zee Music, Zee Alwan is not one of the most popular YouTube channels, but it still amasses a large amount of subscribers.
