by Paul Joseph on July 5, 2013 · 0 comments

Entertainment streaming service has teamed up with Warner Bros to distribute full length feature films through the Hungama Movies website . The new films acquired by include Oscar winning and nominated movie classics such as  Gone With The Wind, The Shawshank Redemption, The  Departed, The Blind Side, The Dark Knight,  the Harry Potter film series, and number of animated classics including the iconic Tom & Jerry and Looney Tunes. Speaking about the partnership Siddhartha Roy, COO, Hungama Digital Media Entertainment said, “  We have over 5000 film and video titles on the Hungama Movies. With the addition of the Warner Bros. library, we now provide some of the world’s best international films to our 50,000 plus subscribers.” I checked out the website but it seems the movies are yet to be added the list. The website is currently showing only old movies and the aforementioned movies are still absent. This is not the first time Hungama has partnered with movie labels. It already has partnered with Yash Raj Films, Big Entertainment, T-Series, UTV Movies, Star India, Shemaroo, Ultra Home and others. Speaking about the partnership, Chris Dyde, Senior Vice President, International Licensee Markets, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group said, “ Providing consumers with more choices and improving the movie experience at home is at the heart of Warner Bros.’ digital strategy and we’re delighted to be working with, to offer viewers across India a fantastic selection of some of the biggest blockbusters from the Warner Bros. catalogue.” Movie on demand service Bigflix recently partnered with IndiaCast and earned streaming rights for Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Colors and also tied up with Disney . In March Google introduced Google Play Movies  and introduces YouTube video rentals  in India. Also this sector may get crowded even more if  popular US movie and content streaming service,  Netflix lands in India.
