From the Content Programming Desk

When I joined BoxTV a year and a half ago, I was more than excited. It was overwhelming in the beginning with  months of pouring through excels – sheet after sheet, scouring movies, studios, star casts, directors, music directors, reviews, ratings, certifications, and screening movies across almost every major language in the country. But I can say that the end result has been more than satisfying.

Without being boastful,  BoxTV can proudly claim, that it  has some of the best movies of all time, accessible to the user through the website and the apps (across popular platforms like iPhone/iPad/Android etc).

BoxTV content library is vast and varied – from cult flicks to commercial blockbusters to musicals to horror legends, drama to crime to comedy, adventures to murder mysteries, suspense thrillers, family dramas, cartoons – as clichéd as it sounds, we really do have the ‘real deal’ for our users. We offer a rich library to the user with content in various languages like, English, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada, Punjabi, Marathi… you name it, we got it.

And BoxTV has integrated the technology with the product keeping you in mind, so that your internet connection can be as bad as possible but you can still stream our movies with minimal buffering! Really!

We are happy that some of the popular movies of all times are up on our site. We all grew up on Bachchan flicks of 70s and 80s, Mithun movies, Disney classics like Duck Tales & Robin Hood, and Kung Fu hits. So if any of these names interest you even a little bit, then we suggest you go ahead – search the site (www.boxtv.com) for your favourite stars, watch all their movies, and let us know what you think about it. A little feedback is always helpful.

BoxTV also offers Charlie Chaplin classics, Laurel & Hardy series, Sherlock Holmes adventures, just as we have Rajesh Khanna’s hits on the site, Rajnikanth, Shah Rukh Khan, Shammi Kapoor, and the diversity is so well distributed, that you just cannot stop watching movies.

 

We have a great team running things here. And well, like most businesses, the best part of the product, is you guys, the viewers. If you’re happy, it makes our days/weeks/months/years going through excel sheets totally worth it.

So stick around, stay tuned to all the new content coming in, and once in a while you can also share your wish list with us. We’ll try to make it happen.

Hi, I am BoxTV!

This is the first post of the official blog that will be maintained by the BoxTV team. A team that has been dying to show you what we’ve been working on for a few months – a premium video service aimed at bringing you the best of entertainment – blockbuster movies, TV shows, short films and more.

BoxTV was designed with some core underlying principles:

“User-first” design
Creating an experience that puts the users before everything else was one of the key goals of our design and development. While you will hear more about this in future posts and also experience this yourself on the site, the core philosophy is to bring the user closer to the entertainment experience and everything else out of the way. We think we’ve done a pretty good job with our unique “lean-back” player controls, allowing users to quickly browse, find their programs and then lean back and enjoy the show.

Your favorites
We realize that different people have different tastes. That is why we’ve put together an ever-growing collection of movies and shows that is diverse – ranging from immortal classics, nostalgic flicks, heart-warming romance, roaring epics, edge-of-the-seat thrillers and much more, including even a range of entertainment for the child in you! These are available across multiple languages – Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and many more coming soon! We also realize that searching an exhaustive catalog can be, well, exhausting! So our content team handpicks programs that we showcase to you and our intelligent system also picks out popular titles and recommendations that are shown to you prominently.

Anywhere, Anytime
BoxTV is designed to work with you wherever you are and whenever you need it. With our soon-to-be-released range of device apps, you can carry BoxTV with you in your smartphone, tablet or other devices. You can watch your favorite programs on the web, continue watching them while on the move and get access to your entire BoxTV account anywhere! All you need is an Internet connection!

We’re super excited to be able to finally bring you the months of work. We sure hope you love it and as we roll out more and more features, we’d love to hear from you on what you like, what you don’t, what you’d like to see and be part of the BoxTV experience with us!

Welcome to BoxTV!
