Indian buyers of the Nokia Lumia 520, 620 and 720 ( but oddly not the 820 and 920) and being given another little incentive to pick up the handsets.
Indian streaming movie subscription service BigFlix, who has a catalogue of over 1,500 movies in 6 Indian languages, has just released their Windows Phone 8 app, and are offering their app and 3 months free access to the service to Nokia’s lower-end Lumia buyers.
The subscription applies to tablets, desktops and laptops as well.
“It brings us immense pleasure to associate with Nokia, India’s leading mobile brand for its newly launched Lumia 520, 620 and 720 Windows 8 smart-phones in a bid to augment our reach amongst the large user-base of Nokia thereby offering the experience of movie entertainment at one’s convenience of time and space. With a focus on the younger and digitally evolved audience, the three freshly launched Nokia Lumia devices are high on innovation and come with not just a spectacular design but also great functionality that will heighten the joy of movie watching,” said Head of Bigflix Shreyash Sigtia.
“For the new generation of the Lumia range we wanted to combine great design and functionality with incredible entertainment options for our consumers. We are extremely excited about bundling the Bigflix app with the Nokia Lumia 520, 620 & 720 smart devices. We are certain that the young and technology-savvy consumers of the Nokia Lumia series will love this app. With access to an extensive range of blockbuster titles on Bigflix available in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Bengali and other Indian languages by simply streaming these movies on their smart-phones, this integration redefines entertainment on-the-go,” added Director of Smart Devices in Nokia India, Middle East and Africa, Vipul Mehrotra.
The Nokia Lumia 520 and 720 are now available in India for Rs 10,499 and Rs 18,999 respectively, and is aimed to win back much of the market share Nokia’s Symbian handsets used to enjoy in the region.
