Rent and subscription options
There will be several marquee premieres every Friday in the Bookmyshow stream. Apart from this, users can also take movie on rent and subscription on Bookmyshow stream. Its charge will also vary according to the category selection, which will be up to 40-700 rupees.
BMS CEO (cinema) Ashish Saxena said that BMS would focus on bringing films under the category like premiere, exclusive, world cinema, missed in theaters, festival favorites and dedicated bundles. These categories have been divided according to the nature, choice and mood of the users.
Interestingly, BMS started global online streaming to allow users to watch live entertainment shows from their homes after the coronovirus epidemic hindered them from watching movies in theaters. Through the bookmyshow online, the company was allowed to watch music, comedy and other art programs.
The company will present the best Hollywood content through partnership
In the Bookmyshow stream, cinema lovers can see films such as Christopher Nolan’s film Tenet, Gal Gadot starrer Wonder Woman 1984 and horror fantasy The Craft: Legacy, especially those who missed these films in the theater. Saxena said that the platform will showcase the best of Hollywood content through partnerships with global producers including Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures.
He said that apart from global content, leading Indian production houses such as Viacom 18, Shemaroo and Rajshree Productions will also bring films for regional content such as Divo, Sillimonx and others.
Saxena said that the bookmyshow stream is an innovation. This platform will not replace the theater experience, but is definitely a natural extension of the cinema business. We will present the movie here only after the movie is released in the theater. Before it is available on platforms that are subscribed to subscription VOD and satellite channels.
