With all movie theatres shut, entertainment moved online in the form of OTT platforms. The latest entry comes in the form of BookMyShow Stream. The platform was already one of the most popular choices for booking tickets with several BookMyShow offers available on event and movie tickets. Now, it has embraced the ‘new normal’ by foraying into video-on-demand services.
In a unique way, BookMyShow Stream preserves the “theatre” experience.
Take a look at what avid moviegoers can expect from this service and what other offers are up for grabs!
BookMyShow Stream: The Latest Video on Demand Streaming Service
If you haven’t heard of it yet, the OTT service BookMyShow Stream launched in February this year with an impressive collection of curated, award-winning movies and shows from renowned production houses.
You can find celebrated movies like the Justice League Snyder Cut, Wonder Woman 1984, Godzilla vs kong and Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. It also holds several Academy Award-nominated flicks like Sound of Metal, Mads Mikkelsen starrer Another Round, Black Messiah, and Judas. Its collection of over 600 movies also includes titles like Captain Philips, Angels & Demons, and The Da Vinci Code.
On the Indian side of the tape, you will find classics like Chalti ka Naam Gaadi, Amar Akbar Anthony, Adalat oo Ekti Meye, Kamaladalam, and Ponthanmada.
What sets BookMyShow Stream apart from its peers in the industry is the nature of content distribution, i.e., you only pay for what you watch. You can buy or rent the movie that you like, select the resolution, and then watch it on any platform of your liking.
Doesn’t that sound strikingly similar to buying tickets to a movie?
The best part of this is that you still have access to the BookMyShow offers available on select vendor credit and debit cards.
You heard that right. When you buy or rent a movie, the transaction completes like any other, and you can apply BookMyShow coupons for discounts.

Your rented movies stay in your account for 30 days. Once you start playing any movie, you will have to finish it within 48 hours, or it will disappear, and you will need to pay for them again.
What’s Next for BookMyShow Stream?
With the pandemic raging on even in 2021, the 72000+ hours of content looks like only the beginning.
Yes, BookMyShow isn’t the first OTT platform to venture into video-on-demand service (we see you Apple TV+); it is by far the most popular one. With several offers on movie tickets and discount coupons, the popularity of BookMyShow is not diminishing anytime soon.
