New Delhi, Sept. 3 (ANI): Reliance Entertainment Digital's movie-on-demand service BIGFLIX has added a new feature to its service called Download, wherein users can now download any movie from the catalog at no additional cost.
The new service will now allow viewers to not just stream but also download their favourite movies and enjoy them offline as per their convenience of time and space, sans advertising and at no additional cost!
In India, content consumption online, such as movie streaming, has always seen limitations such as inconsistent bandwidth and lower internet speeds that has kept masses away.
"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. 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.
Subscribers will be required to install 'download manager' to manage their download lists linked to their BIGFLIX account and in the case of interruption in download, users have the option to resume the download from where it was discontinued earlier.
The download manager sits on the user's machine and enables users to watch the movies which they have downloaded even when they are not connected to the internet i.e. films once downloaded can be watched offline
Users can begin watching the movie as soon as 20 percent download is reached.
All content on BIGFLIX is DRM protected and therefore the movies thus downloaded cannot be copied onto another devices.
The download feature can be availed on the entire catalogue comprising over 2000 titles across genre and languages.
No additional costs to avail download service; users can download and watch films offline so long as their subscription to BIGFLIX is active. (ANI)
