On 14 June 2016, SBS Belgium announced to launch a third channel named ZES. Main reason is that their other channels, VIER and VIJF, will more focus on Flemish productions. As there is still a market which wanted to see foreign, mainly English-languaged movies, sitcoms and series, it was decided to move the broadcast of these programs previously broadcast in two other channels to this new channel.
