I have been using 70mm for the last few months and their service is good so far and the delivery on time. There have been a couple of instances when their DVD didn't play because of scratches but otherwise it has been satisfactory.
They don't have a very big collection in English and recent releases are not available too.

None of these guys deliver outside of metros. So, I can only reminisce about the fantastic NetFlix service I enjoyed for many years in... another lifetime.

Meanwhile, I am surprised about the comments regarding newness of the DVDs. Do you guys really expect newly released movies on DVDs? Legitimate businesses can't rent out pirated DVDs.

I think BigFlix have the largest collection in India. If you are watching 80 -90% time english movies , this is for you. Many ppl have road side DVD's but watching them on BIG LCD , plasma + DTS + Dolby digital + THX etc etc, brings tears to viewers eyes. Mainly because of bad quality of picture.

Now you have Option to watch all original DVD's + home delivery + List maintaince online etc etc.
I don't know what else we can ask for (Yes blue ray is there , but many ppl don't have blue ray players in india)

I brought the 3 dvd yrly plan at 40 % discount. I have not watched the star movies / HBO channel in last 4-5 months and now I find it very disgusting to watch 10 mins commercial break during a normal movie.


Yes :- They have some bad DVD's. But call them and tell them the DVD is bad and they will send you the good copy next day.

Funny part is:- Many of those DVD's have this lable

"Not for Rental" .

But I guess Mr A Ambani can handle that.

I agree with hrishg. I am totally loving the experience of Bigflix and they are very prompt with their delivery and at most i got the second in selected list and sometimes i too faced bad DVD quality but for the price we pay, nothing to crib about.

Morever, i have a reliance outlet 200Mtrs from home which i can hop,skip and jump and replace a bad DVD, if need be.

I use Moviemart in Delhi and am very happy with them. They deliver originals without fail (or say 99.5% of the time) by 4-5 PM on the same day if you book before 1 PM. Perhaps 1 out of 25 may not play because of scratches. Movie collection is quite good and comparable to 70mm/Big Flix (have checked it out myself).

So I shopped for the monthly groceries at Big Bazaar and ran a bill of Rs 1,260. Because of a promotional offer, I got Big Flix 1 disc plan for a monthly fee of Rs 99 and 2 monthly for Rs 150. I chose the latter.

Spent close to 2 hours browsing through their collection yesterday. Could not queue more than 30 titles! I have watched most of the titles in their collection and the ones that I want are not available!

P.S. The only glitch with Big Flix till now - they delivered to my Billing Address instead of Delivery Address. Luckily, neighbors were there to receive the disc.

What is the quality of downloaded videos?
We take the original high quality studio materials and convert these using state-of-the-art equipment for high quality viewing on your PC. We offer 'Super High Quality' videos that is equivalent to DVD quality. The technical specifications are: DVD equivalent resolution, a bitrate of 1500 Kbps with 96Kbps audio. The average size of a full length movie download is 1100 MB (1.1 GB).
========

Not sure whether they are going to give good quality for download options!!
if current users can provide some feedback, it would be good..
thanks.
Is there a separate subscription charge for Movie Download? I have a 1 disc 2 month rental plan from Big Flix. Can that same user ID and password be used for downloading as well>

Time to merge different threads and make one big movie rental thread here. Mods, are you listening. Merge this with BigFlix or vice-versa and let there be peace of mind.

Rs.3500 for 1 year for 1-disc plan and you get some vegetable cutter and one other home equipment free.

I am on my second year and got 1st year for Rs.1800 and 2nd year for Rs.2300 for one-disc plan
