In India, content consumption online, such as movie streaming, has always seen limitations such as inconsistent bandwidth & lower internet speeds that has kept masses away. As India’s largest movie streaming service, BIGFLIX has often received grievance from its users about persistent internet diffidence spoiling their movie watching experience.

“It’s not exactly the launch of the download service, it’s the solution of a long standing, internet- connectivity related issue faced by most of our users across regions. At BIGFLIX, our aim had always been to reach out to those movie lovers who shy away from a streaming service for the sheer lack of stable internet connectivity. So now our users need not worry about streaming their favourite films, they can download at their convenience and watch them offline anytime, anywhere without having to worry about the accessibility to internet. Internet connectivity is no longer a restraint to the movie watching experience to our subscribers -whether they are at home or on the go!” said Mr. Shreyash Sigtia, Business Head, BIGFLIX.

BIGFLIX has been consistently expanding its content offering by partnering with leading entertainment houses like Reliance Entertainment, UTV, Disney, Shemaroo Entertainment, IndiaCast, Unisys, AP International and many more to bring an assortment of films for the Indian consumers who prefer entertainment at their convenience of time and space. This entire catalogue of several thousands of movies on BIGFLIX can now be streamed or downloaded on desktops and laptops with plans starting Rs.99 onwards.

Subscribers will be required to install ‘download manager’ to manage their download lists linked to their BIGFLIX account.
