Dish TV, an Indian pay-TV giant, is launching a simplified VOD service that works without needing access to the Internet.

Potential users to DishFlix need an additional $92 (Rupees 5990) storage STB to access the service and then subscribe for $1.53 a month. Dish TV will download 15 films a month (one every two days) in a ratio of 70/30 in favour of Hindi/English-language movies. Other languages will be added later.

The usual pause, rewind/replay, fast-forward benefits would be available. The box would come pre-loaded with 50 movies, and 15 would then be added each month on a on a first in, first out basis.
