And Now, An Exclusive Streaming Platform For South Indian Movies
: Tollywood fans can get to watch a wide variety of movies
If you have always wondered why you don’t get to see enough of Tollywood (which makes some of the best cinema in India today) on streaming platforms like Netflix or Amazon Prime, fret not. There is an exclusive streaming platform for only South Indian content that you were probably not aware of. Simply South, was rolled out in February 2019 and this Dubai-based company aims to tap into the Indian diaspora across the world, in markets like Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai, Sri Lanka, US, and Canada, among others.
Simply South has a library of over 1000+ Tamil, Malayalam, and Telugu movies, clips and songs to choose from and another 500+ movies in the pipeline. Users can enjoy a seven-day free trial and opt to subscribe for as low as 7.99 USD per month. There is also the option of TVOD, wherein select movies can be rented and viewed for a period of 48hrs from purchase.
The platform, available across the world except India, was launched with the release of the Tamil film Viswasam and has since acquired customers across 25+ countries. As of February 2020, the platform has not just blockbusters, such as Kaithi, Bigil and Pattas, but also rare-to-find classics such as Parasakthi, Alaipayuthey and Jeans, among others. ‘
Anish Wadhwa, founder of Simply South said “Today, if you want to watch a South Indian film online, the options are few and far between. Further, there is no platform dedicated to providing only South Indian content. Simply South is thus our attempt to fill this void and fight piracy.”
Equipped with 1080p HD & 5.1 audio, the platform has also recently rolled out the ‘Offline Download’ feature, so users can download their favourite films and enjoy offline playback on the go. The app ‘Simply South’ is compatible on the following devices: Android and iOS Mobile, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, LG TV, Roku, Amazon FireStick, Amazon FireTV and Chromecast. A dedicated app for Samsung Smart TVs is soon to follow.
Some of the top rated movies you can find on the platform are Kaithi, To Let, Ratsasan, Vikram Vedha, Bigil, Kabali, Viswasam, Chandramukhi etc.
