Zee Café launched on Sky in the United Kingdom and Ireland on 15 July 2010.[5] The channel originally served as Zee's network hybrid channel, which used to broadcast shows from a number of its existing channels in India. On 11 September 2012, it was repositioned as a classics channel, airing re-runs of old Zee TV programming,[6] covering cookery, dramas, horror and mythology. At the same time the channel became free-to-air.[7] On 10 June 2013, the British version of Zee Café closed and was replaced by Lamhe, another free-to-air classics channel from Zee.[8]
