ErosNow, RailTel tie-up to offer video streaming service at railway stations

online travel

Eros International’s online streaming service ErosNow has tied-up with RailTel Corporation of India to offer passengers at railway stations across India access to its entertainment content on their mobile devices. However, it isn’t clear when this service will go live or if it’s already live at some railway stations. We’ve written to ErosNow and will update the story once we hear back.

Last year, RailTel had introduced free Wi-Fi service Bangalore City railway station in October and at New Delhi railway station in December. The service is free for the first 30 minutes, after which users have to purchase extra browsing time online using a credit card or buy a scratch card at the Wi-Fi helpdesk at the stations. For 30 minutes of extra browsing time commuters will have to pay Rs 25 and for 1 hour the price is Rs 35, and these are valid for 24 hours.

At the time, RailTel had said that similar Wi-Fi facility will be introduced at other A1 & A category stations soon, though it’s not clear exactly when this is scheduled to be implemented. Apparently, Dadar and CST in Mumbai and Thane stations are on the list of stations to get this service.

Partnerships: ErosNow, which was launched in 2012, had partnered with Indian multiple-system operator (MSO) Home Cable Network Private Ltd. to offer its collection of films and music to Home Cable network’s customer base, in September last year. The company had entered into a similar partnership with Hathway in July of the same year. ErosNow first started featuring TV content on its site in April 2014 and had signed a partnership with Zee TV for rights to worldwide distribution of its soaps and reality shows in August 2014. The company had also inked content tie-ups with UTV and Viacom18 in 2013.
