Users will have access to unique content on Eros Now, with subscriptions offering a range of features, such as offline content, full-length movies, thematic curated playlists, watch lists, regional-language filters, video progression and subtitles to offer the best video viewing experience to users.

Music lovers will be able to enjoy individual music tracks and music video playlists using the Eros Now app.
