YouTube introduced the Box Office some time back, which lets you stream free Bollywood movies. Although there aren’t many new ones that you can stream, but at least there are some. The service attracted a huge audience from India, since it’s tough to come by free bollywood movies online. Now, Yahoo wants to get in the game and challenge YouTube with their introduction of MoviePlex.
Yahoo MoviePlex is similar to YouTube Box Office and streams free Bollywood movies in India. This is started by Yahoo India, so it’s definitely going to be bigger than YouTube, since they don’t have many licences that’ll help them stream lots of content. At the moment, there aren’t many movies uploaded that you can watch, but soon enough there will be pages of them. The idea of watching a movie by streaming is pretty awesome, since there aren’t many legit sites that do so. Specially for the people in India, this is going to be something.
There is a question however. Is a normal broadband connection adequate to stream these movies? Well, as far as the quality of the movie is concerned, I found YouTube to be better. In terms of newer titles, Yahoo emerged as a winner.YouTube, even though it has lots of titles, most of them are pretty old movies.
Only time will tell which service is going to be used more and it all depends on what movies and how many movies are added to the list. It’s not clear how Yahoo will make a profit from this, because if they don’t the service may have to be shut down. It’s certainly going to take some time, since broadband speeds in India is only catching up with the world and a huge part of the population still hasn’t got broadband.
