Roundup: Doordarshan, IAvatarZ, Eros & Comcast, Airtel, Carwale, Indimoto

Bollywood Hits On Demand Distributed By Comcast

The video on demand service is by Eros Entertainment and International Media Distribution. Bollywood Hits on Demand is now being offered to Comcast users for a monthly charge of $12.9. The service offers 25 Bollywood movie titles and more than 50 music videos. (Little India)

Our Take: Comcast is also offering a reduced pricing ($9.9) if users sign up with Bollywood Hits on Demand -this will draw more Asian viewers and make it mutually beneficial. When will see such partnerships happening here?

Indimoto Partners RadioCity

Carpooling and auto classifieds site Indimoto has partnered with Radio City 91.1 FM and to air a new carpool-focussed program in Delhi and Mumbai. Listeners can send an SMS to the radio jockey who will pass it onto Indimoto, which will put it up as a listing for carpooling after obtaining relevant information.(Yahoo)

Our Take: Think traffic and Bangalore comes to mind – commuters there would benefit more from this program.
