Netflix Desi Style

I'm considering joining BigFlix, the Indian version of netflix. This site is run by Reliance, no surprise is you read my last post. The thing that amazes me about this business model, is how cheap it is - given that here it is run on home delivery (as in someone brings you your movies).

The company is running in 40 cities, and the premise is the same. You manage a queue of films you would like to see & then select a date to get them. The nearest store then sends out a delivery boy to bring you your movies. You can call him to pick them up, or swing them by the store.

The cost? about 10 bucks a month. Cheaper than netflix - but this firm is maintaining stores, delivery drivers, etc.... Pretty impressive.
