BigFlix expands catalogue to 1000 movies

MUMBAI: BigFlix has expanded its catalogue in India to over 1000 movies spanning across eight major languages like Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam and Punjabi across all genres of romance, drama, action and comedy.

On his company’s revamped approach, BigFlix content head Sandeep Mehra said, “Our effort is to make movies available on World Wide Web within 15 to 20 days of its theatrical release. Out of 200 movies released in India, only 20 movies release internationally. The aim of BigFlix is to showcase latest Bollywood movies of good quality print at an economical price. Now anyone with internet access can stream full movies at extremely affordable price. They don’t have to resort to bad quality print or piracy anymore. With this we also take a step towards abolition of piracy.”

With BigFlix one can experience a seamless movie viewing experience on the Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Android Devices and Smart TV with a single login across devices.

Many film producers like Vikram Bhatt have embraced this digitisation with open arms and are positive that the digital medium launch will prove to be a good catalyst for films to have a wider reach.

Said Bhatt, “With the kind of digital boon we are witnessing, services like BigFlix will drastically increase a filmmaker’s reach. It will give them an opportunity to cater to a vast audience both in India and the international market. It is a win-win situation for both the subscribers and the film producers because now the film can reach a much wider and diverse audience at a very nominal fee.”

BigFlix’ entire catalogue is available in DVD quality print at a small subscription fee of 249 Rs per month for unlimited streaming and downloads.
