MUMBAI: Tata Sky has announced the launch of Showcase, its dedicated pay-per-view movies service. With this service, Tata Sky promises to offer new Hollywood and Bollywood blockbusters to the customers.

Showcase, the pay-per-view will launch with the movie Taxi No. 9211, screening on multiple channels, offering subscribers a number of convenient viewing options. The movies will be screened without any ad breaks.

Priced at Rs 75 per movie, the service will provide viewers with a convenient and economical alternative to watching movies in cinema halls, according to an official release.

The original prints of all the films will be sourced directly from their producers and digital satellite television transmission will ensure DVD quality picture and CD quality sound throughout the movies.

This service can be enjoyed equally by every family member and undoubtedly will recreate the experience of watching a movie in the theatre, in the comfort of the home. The freedom to choose the time of viewing and the liberation from advertisements while watching one’s favourite movies will be universally welcomed.”

To purchase a movie, a subscriber will need to call the Tata Sky helpline and make a request for the movie, indicating the desired time slot. Orders can be placed up to five minutes prior to the film’s start, informs the statement.
