One of the digital TV service providers has also vowed to launch the 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 standouts for different features or content. iflix, brought by Ncell has a large number of international content and it can be watched offline, also in various devices. It also has a Nepali subtitle in international content and also starts providing Latest Nepali movies and more Nepali video content.
Talking about TV streaming popularity in Nepal, Net TV Nepal and WowTime are superior among others. Whereas for the latest Nepali movies, the latest addition to video streaming, Fopi app was quite fast in bringing new Nepali movies at first. But they are quite slow these days as iflix is quicker and has more new Nepali movies than Fopi.
With the popularity of video content in Nepal, more such apps keep on launching in Nepal. Although these apps have grown the video contents and become stable, there is still a room for International Video streaming app like Netflix to come here. We will update you when such apps reach here.
