Eros Now, the video streaming platform of Bollywood production house Eros International, will allow its premium subscribers to download videos offline for free on Android devices; iOS users will have to wait. The feature is also available for normal subscribers at $1.49 (Rs 99) per month in India and $7.99 for international subscribers and downloads are allowed on WiFi networks only.

Users can also choose the quality of the video format while downloading for offline viewing. The video file is stored in the app’s ‘My Downloads’ section and cannot be retrieved manually through a file browser.The new feature announced by ErosNow is primarily aimed to allow subscribers to watch films when they are faced with connectivity issues due to low bandwidth, etc. or when they have a limited broadband data availability.
