The channels, however, resumed operations only around 6pm.

Manoj Mathew, VP of Marketing & Corporate Communications, of Real Media Zee Network in the Middle East, said, “The network experienced a brief and momentary lapse in operations due to technical reasons which was then instantly rectified. This was done with the least inconvenience to our viewers who are now enjoying the broadcast as before. We are awaiting the results of our preliminary investigation to seek the root cause and to ensure smooth operation.”
