BigFlix now allows users to download movies, view them offline

Reliance Entertainment Digital movie-on-demand service BigFlix has added a new movie download feature for its subscribers. The service will allow users to download their favorite movies and watch them at no extra cost.

According to a press release, BigFlix has more than 1 million registered users and over a lakh subscribers. It has partnered with entertainment houses like Reliance Entertainment, Disney, UTV, IndiaCast, Unisys, Shemaroo Entertainment and many more for its movie library. The company has a library of several thousand movies that can be downloaded to desktops and laptops with plans starting at Rs.99.

To download movies from BigFlix subscribers will have to install the ‘download manager’. Once it is installed users can just log on to the site and download movies and watch them even when offline. The service allows users to resume the download from where it was discontinued earlier in case their Internet service gets interrupted. Users can begin watching the movie as soon as the 20% download mark is reached.

Shreyash Sigtia, Business Head, Bigflix stated: "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!"
