Subscription-based video-on-demand service
Voot is one of India’s premier on-demand services, available as an app and via your web browser. It offers TV shows, movies, and more for different subscription plans. Now you can watch your favorite Indian shows on the go, whenever and wherever you are.
Voot is available for free but at the cost of having to watch ads. If you want the full premium Voot experience, which includes Indian and international TV programs and movies, you’ll have to fork out for a Voot Select subscription.
You can opt for either a yearly or monthly plan, with the ability to cancel at any time. It’s also possible to get a free trial for up to two weeks, although you’ll still need to input payment details. However, unlike Netflix, a Voot subscription only covers one device.
With so many on-demand apps around, a service needs to offer something new or different. Whereas Hotstar, another leading Indian TV service, is partnered with Disney+, Voot is part of the Viacom18 family.
What this means is you’ll have access to exclusive TV shows like Asur, Marzi, Fuh Se Fantasy, It’s Not That Simple! and much more. Viacom18 is part of a huge broadcast network, which means you’ll also be able to watch TV from the US (including The Twilight Zone, MTV, Comedy Central) and films from across the globe.
Voot doesn’t just cater to different TV tastes - you can also use the app in Marathi, Kannada, Bengali, Telugu, Gujarati, and Tamil. Want to watch live news in your language? No problem. Find content that caters to your region.
There are a few technical caveats to Voot, however. First, although you can download it for Android, iOS, and Fire TV, it’s only available in India. Secondly, users have been reporting issues with TV buffering and a lack of updates, so keep this in mind if you want to give it a go.
Should You Download It?
Yes, if you’re living in India and want access to exclusive shows and movies. Otherwise, you may be better off with other streaming Android apps like Netflix.
