Okay !, The First question ,what you guys do when you wanna entertain yourself sitting infront of pc,laptop or just while using your smartphones or tablet.Most of the folks use either facebook or youtube as their entertainment medium.There are hell lot of stuff on web to be explored,especially when it comes to watch some movies or your tv series online.Most of the internet user likes to watch content(movies,tv shows etc) via downloading it from any website or downloading it from popular peer to peer file sharing websites viz. “Torrent Sites”.Enormous amount of contents is uploaded daily on web.
As broadband and cellular data connectivity spreads and improves, streaming movies and TV shows is becoming an increasingly viable option. Many film streaming services are available in India at pretty nominal rates, and quite a few of these have been optimised for slow Internet connections too. If you are a film buff, you might want to check out these services. They’re all legal, reasonably priced, and with a good selection of films and TV shows on offer too.
So,here is the list of some popular video streaming websites in india that you can try out or can explore and get entertained.
No need of introduction,this website is ruling over internet along with facebook since 2005.It is currently second most popular website followed by google.com.YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California, United States. The service was created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005. In November 2006, it was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion. YouTube now operates as one of Google’s subsidiaries.The site allows users to upload, view, rate, share, and comment on videos, and it makes use of WebM, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, and Adobe Flash Video technology to display a wide variety of user-generated andcorporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, audio recordings, movie trailers, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos.
Star group’s app Hotstar is great for watching live sports, but it lets you stream a wide range of TV shows and films as well. To top it off, Hotstar is completely free. It has a fairly big collection of TV shows and films that you can watch for free on its website without signing up, and on your smartphone via its Android and iOS apps. Apart from English and Hindi, Hotstar has content in various Indian languages as well.
Hotstar has added an ad-free premium subscription with several shows such as Game of Thrones available the moment they air in the US. The content available on Hotstar’s premium service is well worth the asking price.
Netflix is also more expensive compared to the competition, with plans starting Rs. 500 per month, but we feel that its superior UI, the collection of Netflix Originals you won’t find anywhere else, justifies the price. The one dealbreaker could be the fact that it doesn’t have offline support. If you have a flaky Internet connection, Netflix is a bad idea. Netflix’s library has been improving consistently since its launch and has now reached a point where subscribing to Netflix India is a good idea if you love international movies and TV shows.
Viacom18’s newly launched video streaming service – Voot – is free and has a surprisingly decent library of content. On the first glance itself we found quite a few recent movies that we want to watch, which is not always the case with video streaming services. Its collection contains several movies playing on TV channels right now, which only highlights the fact that its library is good. While we loved its library of Indian films, its collection of international movies left a lot to be desired. The service also lets you watch popular TV shows such as Bigg Boss and Balika Vadhu, apart from some original TV series, which is a plus.
Hooq has a fairly big catalogue of films and TV shows, which even features Doordarshan classics such as Nukkad. Hooq’s UI is nicer than some of the alternatives mentioned here, which is a plus. It has a free 14-day trial after which you will have to pay Rs. 199 per month.
Sony LIV is a good choice if you want to watch Sony’s TV shows, but the service also lets you watch films. Sony Xperia smartphone owners usually get a short subscription for free with their devices.
7) Ditto Tv
Ditto TV ,owned by zee ,lets you watch its catalogue of films and TV shows for Rs. 149 per month.
8) Big Flix
BigFlix is among the big video streaming players in India. It lets you watch a 10-minute preview of some films for free without registration, and you can continue watching for free after registration.
YuppTV lets you watch live TV apart from films. The subscription fee starts at Rs. 99 per month.
BoxTV also has a reasonably big catalogue of films and TV shows. Its plans start at Rs. 199 per month but it has a free tier where you can watch some films with ad breaks.
Muvizz aims to be a hub for independent films and you can see that in its catalogue. The service features more than just mainstream Bollywood films, highlighting some underrated gems such as Tahaan. Some films are free, and you can watch all the films for a fee of Rs. 300 per month.
Ogle charges a fee of Rs. 249 per month for films, TV shows and some live events, but its registrations were closed at the time of writing. The service opens registrations periodically.
Hungama Movies also lets you stream films at Rs. 249 per month. The service’s apps on Android and iOS offer a decent user experience too.
