India loves movies. And streaming has been growing phenomenally in the recent past. Yet, there is a dearth of movie streaming services such as Netflix. A consistent impediment in the recent past, in addition to licensing hassles, has been the long debate around net neutrality in India.
According to a report in the Times of India, “US-based Netflix, has firmed up plans to enter India by 2016, according to people familiar with the matter. This has sent domestic DTH players into a tizzy with some of the major ones chalking out strategies to diversify beyond television. On the cards are iconic shows including Buniyaad, Nukkad and Malgudi Days on various mobile devices across iOS and Android.”
