New Delhi, India, February 3, 2016: India’s first ‘Online + Offline’ video streaming application, PressPlay TV (http://www.pressplaytv.in/) plans to build India’s largest video content discovery & distribution platform across mobile devices. Keeping in view the fact that internet data is very expensive in India & connectivity is not very consistent across geographies, the company has developed a hybrid delivery model that uses strategically placed PressPlay wireless hotspots and the internet (3G/4G) to enable uninterrupted and free video streaming at high speeds. The PressPlay Hotspots are set to increase four times their existing number, from 2500 to 10,000 by the year-end. These would be spread across top bus travel operators, Railways, Hotels, Hospitals and QSRs (Quick Service Restaurants) to offer best in class content anytime, anywhere. PressPlay TV promises to be a revolutionary next generation video streaming platform that will redefine the way video content is consumed in India.
High quality curated video content
PressPlay TV is the only Indian company offering high quality free video streaming through a network of dedicated hotspots. There are more than 2,500 (and soon 10,000) dedicated PressPlay hotspots across India. The company has already tied up, on the supply side, with leading movie studios, video content companies and popular independent artists and on the demand side, partnered with top travel operators, Railways, Hotels, Hospitals and QSRs to offer best in class content anytime, anywhere. Viewers can watch or download latest free Movies, TV Shows & Videos for free in HD at super fast speeds without any buffering.
“We started PressPlay TV with a mission to make high quality, curated and best-in-class video content easily accessible, anytime and anywhere, to consumers – across platform and devices. Reflecting the true spirit of the ‘Make in India’ initiative, we dug deep into our own experiences and insights to customize and refine the PressPlay video delivery model especially for Indian conditions. The aim is to make the transition from off-line streaming to on-line streaming, seamless. As a first step we have recently launched the PressPlay TV android app,” says Anand Sinha, Co founder & CEO, PressPlay TV
Democratizing video content – Hotspots & beyond
Beyond the PressPlay Hotspot network users can also access the content over the internet (3G/4G). Using the recently launched PressPlay TV android app (https://goo.gl/DvXNHz), viewers can watch curated, latest short trending videos from across the internet in more than 30+ channels like Bollywood, gadgets & technology, Comedy, TV Shows, Music & more on any smartphone or tablet. Users will be able to enjoy movies and TV shows from March 1, 2016 on the PressPlay TV mobile app. The app is available free on the Google Play store, the iOS version will make its debut soon.
