Hooq adds Spider-Man: Homecoming to its TVOD section

MUMBAI: Asia’s premium video on demand (VoD) service Hooq has added the recently released Hollywood superhero film Spider-Man: Homecoming to its list of blockbusters and Hollywood hits under its TVOD section.

Fans of Spider-Man can now rent the latest Hollywood blockbuster fresh from theatres line, for just Rs. 59/- (on Android devices) or Rs. 80/- (on iOS devices) exclusively on Hooq.

This news comes on the back of the recent announcement of Hooq becoming one of the first players to provide TVOD services in India. This enables the HOOQ customers to rent the latest Hollywood movies within a couple of months of its theatrical release.

There will be new movies available every month from top Hollywood studios including Sony Pictures and Warner Bros. ensuring that the customers can enjoy major titles such as Wonder Woman, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them all in the comfort of their home or on any internet connected device of their choice.

The company recently announced its strategic shift to focus only on Hollywood content with offerings from both subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) and transactional video-on-demand (TVOD), allowing customers to access Hollywood blockbusters, hot favourites and top rate US TV series such as Friends, Nikita and Spartacus at a new pricing of INR 89 per month which comes with a 30-day complimentary trial.

Commenting on the new additions, Hooq India MD Salil Kapoor said, “Hollywood movies are available for a smaller period of time and on few screens even in large cities. Moreover, in smaller towns, very few international titles get released. At HOOQ, we realise this gap and thus came up with our latest offering which makes us the only player in the Indian market to provide TVOD services and enable our users to watch the latest Hollywood movies fresh from theatres line at a very affordable price of Rs 59 /-. This is a testimony to our vision to becoming the ‘Home of Hollywood’.”
