Netflix cloned in India: SeventyMMPosted: March 22, 2006
SeventyMM launched on March 2nd this year. Surprisingly, their launch was rather low-key.
In a twist to Netflix, they will only allow upto 2 DVD’s and you have to pay a Rs. 2000 deposit up-front (thats about $40). They charge Rs. 550 (about $11) for a month of unlimited movies. They have the advantage of entering the market early. The issue is dealing with the postal service. Or have they decided to work around them altogether?

- The National Government of India is considering a proposal to ban private courier services in India.
