Lights, Camera and Action
If the person you are thinking of gifting handsomely this holiday season is an avid movie or TV show follower, gifting seamless access to a leading, high quality catalog of TV and movie content will for sure be a gift worth remembering.
Netflix is popular and the most comprehensive global catalog of movies and TV shows as well as original programming shows by Netflix (which are a runaway hit!). Content is available across 200 countries. A Netflix subscription will be a great gift and costs ₹8000 per year of HD content or ₹10,000 per year on HD & Ultra HD content with the ability to download videos on your PCS or smart devices. The next obvious choice is Amazon Prime Video which is also a global video content streaming service that is included in the Amazon Prime service which is a mere ₹499 per year as an introductory price. This is a great deal though the catalog is not up to the mark of Netflix but still has some good collection of original content by Amazon. Similarly, if one is a frequent traveler to USA or UK, do checkout hulu, HBO Go for some serious gripping content. Likewise, in India, you can also gift a subscription of Hotstar, a Netflix competitor with a huge catalog of regional Indian content along with premium US TV shows from HBO (e.g. Game of Thrones). It also features live sports streaming for Cricket, Premier league and F1 again at ₹1200 per year.
So ideally, a bundle of two-three hot services such as Netflix+hotstar or Netflix+hbo Go for a year would be a fantastic gift to satisfy comprehensive video cravings.
