Not long ago we did a story on ways to legally download/stream movies, shows and music online. A lot of you had responded saying 'why would I pay when I can get those content online for free'. Well, as a customer, you do make sense, but not to forget it is still illegal and perhaps unethical. Success of Netflix and Hulu in the U.S. clearly shows customers if given high speed and quality broadband and good content range, they'd rather pay than pirate.
But back in India, we don't have the likes of Netflix and Hulu. A few music and video streaming apps, relatively expensive subscription plans and more importantly inconsistent broadband quality are a few factors that have delayed existence of a quality video /multimedia service in India. Cut to Hooq, a new video streaming service that just launched in India is now looking to change the trend. The service comes with a wide range of content and has been specially designed to cater to the emerging markets such as India. We spent some time with the application ahead of the official release. The application has a very simple interface with major focus on content (movies). Hooq, which will be available for Android and iOS platforms, has a wide range of Hollywood content. Hooq claims it has over 5,000 Holllywood movies and TV series.
