VOOT (Video Streaming Service) – Review

Hey ppl Today we are going to review a new video streaming app called Voot from Viacom 18, this is the same company which brings us MTV, colours rishtey & NICK TV for Kids, so you can expect many of the shows from these Tv channels to be available in this app either “Exclusively or not” Click Here to watch this review voot-intro lets talk about the app itself in terms of User Interface first, When you first open the app , it will ask you to login into the app, you can either login from Facebook, google or email address Click Here to watch this review IMG_0502 or you can choose to skip login for now unlike some of the other services like netflix, you don’t need to create a login to access the contents & like hotstar, you can access all contents of the service as of now, its ad supported, however u cannot skip or Minimise the ad, I think the app should atleast allow us to minimise the ad, i mean not completely minimise but just like the minimise that we can do in youtube or hotstar. the UI is smooth and responsive but is similar to all the other streaming services that we have seen so far in india, however unlike hotstar, you cannot save any contents for offline viewing. Click Here to watch this review IMG_0510 This is a app & web based service, so anything that you start watching in you mobile or tablet you can continue in web or laptop, provided you are logged in to the services with your username. Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 10.00.56 PM Lets talk about the USP of this service, that is “CONTENT”, the contents are divided into three parts, SHOWS, Movies & KIDS IMG_0507 In Terms Shows: It mainly consists of shows from MTV or Colours or Rishtey Tv channels in india, basically if you are a Roadies fan, khatro ke khiladi fan, coke studio fan or Comedy nights with kapil fan or the mighty “BIGG BOSS” fan, you can go for this service, i know the shows that i just names are the most highly rated rated ever shows in Indian television, may be the shows alone are enough for most people to try this service out. Then they have average indian soaps like Balika vadhu, beintehaa etc, we have a good fan / followers base of these soaps as well. Then They have Voot Originals: there are a number of Voot original shows that are coming up, family comedy like “chinese bhasad” somewhat adult talk show by babuji “Sinskari”, a gulshan grover starrer “BADMAN” and more, all these Voot Originals looks promising and it remains to be seen how these shows perform There movies calelogue is small and average as of now, but i am sure it will grow in future, but rite now, theres nothing much going on in this category. Click Here to watch this review KIDS: This is probably one of the strong points of this service, some of their existing KIDS characters are very popular in india like, chipmunks, spongebob, etc. Conclusion: Finally we would like to conclude that content wise, this service has rights to some of the most popular shows available in INDIAN TV space rite now and some very very compelling new originals coming out, along with a good collection of KIDS content, the service has something for KIDS and adults both, and with the marketing muscle of VIACOM 18 behind it, we expect the content catalogue to grow even more exponentially, Our Verdict 7 out of 10 Watch the video review by “bbhagawati” below https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knF6DjtEUgA
