Eros Now is an Indian subscription based over-the-top, video on-demand entertainment and media platform, launched in 2012, and owned and controlled by Eros Digital. The network offers media streaming and video-on-demand services to its audience.

THE PROBLEM STATEMENT

To meet global demand for the growing popularity of Bollywood films, Eros Now wanted to increase the distribution of its service to new devices, platforms, and service providers, and improve the quality of experience for these global audiences. They also wanted to limit ongoing engineering resources and be able to deliver to any device or platform as well as support emerging technologies such as Dolby Atmos and 4K UHD. Steep technology and platform licensing fees became a significant deterrent to traditional OVP and cloud-based streaming services. Eros Now needed to achieve the following:

  • Deliver better video quality
  • Reach global audiences
  • Reallocate resources to research and innovation
  • Reduce overall technology fees
