With over 5,000 music videos in more than 15 languages, the VAS provider has just opened a treasure-trove of content that can be made available across platforms.
BigFlix has been on content aggregation lately. It appears that BigFlix is in preparation to rival Netflix as & when it launches in India. It also has to YouTube & Yahoo to compete & given the size of the Digital content market, the sooner companies garner more content the better. BigFlix recently partnered with Airtel to stream content to Airtel’s subscribers.

Reliance has till date acquired lots of content through Reliance Entertainment & other ventures. It also has the capability to stream data effortlessly through its in-house distribution network. Lets see how this new acquisition affects its value-proposition.
