Video content is a trend among connected smartphone users these days and the adoption of video streaming apps has also increased a lot recently in Nepal. Apart from the world’s universal Video apps like YouTube, Nepal also has a bunch of its own on offer. These are customized apps for Nepali movie apps or TV content. Although the Netflix app has its special page for the Nepal domain, it is difficult to pay for Netflix using Visa/Master card or Paypal. Here are the Top Video streaming apps in Nepal for watching movies and videos.
With such apps, you do not need to worry if you miss any TV shows or Movies. Some of the apps are specific to one telecom operator as they have partnered with them solely.

One of the digital TV service providers has also vowed to launch an OTT app for the TV service. Prabhu TV had its motive to add this portfolio to its TV services for which it bought the NETTV mobile app (READ ABOVE). With the purchase, we can expect them to provide easy and affordable TV/video streaming services on the go.
Among those video streaming apps in Nepal, one or two stand out for different features or content. iflix, brought by Ncell has a large number of international content and it can be watched offline, also on various devices. It also has a Nepali subtitle in international content and also starts providing the latest Nepali movies and more Nepali video content.
Talking about TV streaming popularity in Nepal, Net TV Nepal and WowTime are superior among others.

But they are quite slow these days as iflix is quicker and has more new Nepali movies than Fopi.
