8 Domestic Alternatives To Netflix

While the video streaming facility Netflix made a huge splash abroad, its time in India has made less of an impact than expected. It isn’t that the service is not popular, however the lack of local content means that many users have turned to Indian alternatives. Here are some streaming sites that have been rivaling Netflix.

BIGFlix

1-min

 

Launched by Reliance when Netflix first entered the Indian market, BIGFlix offers a range of Indian origin content from a variety of languages. Users of the app can watch clips to earn BIGFlix coins, which can be used to then watch movies of your choice. However the movie will only be available for 24 hours after you pay for it. Thus creating a bit of a BIGFix!

Spuul

Another such server, Spuul also offers content that is produced in India. Users can choose from not only Bollywood content but also regional language movies that are generally less than 60MB. Using PayPal or online credit and debit cards, you can use Spuul to watch a movie as it downloads in the background.

Hotstar

3-min

Created by Star TV, Hotstar currently offers only content that belongs to Star. With a wide selection of old and new movies, TV shows and even sports events, this service is a strong rival to Netflix. Those who subscribe to the premium version can even watch the latest of popular American shows and movies.

YuppTV is simply put, a way to access content from television channels in real time. Accessible from your smartphone, you can also choose to binge watch any TV shows that you may have missed in the last week. While it is not a great option for watching movies, TV soap addicts will love this app.

MyPlex

This is another way to watch live TV, however MyPlex also offers users the option of streaming local and international movies and other videos online. Users can create a schedule of their favourite show timings using this app.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
