Online video requires at least 4.5 Mbps stable connection. That means about 1800 MB of data per hour. At a price of Rs. 2 / MB, imagine how much you have to pay at the current B'Band plan.

Movies will not be charged at Rs 2 per Mb or whatever but they shall be charged Per Movie basis ( say Rs 20 or Rs 50 per movie ).

the point is how they implement it. sify has a portal for providing similar content. but when u pay per meg... it is not actually of any use.

Paying per meg for Video on Demand would be ridiculous but I think VoD will be charged per movie and not per meg. But we never know.

per movie... i guess for that they would have to start mantaining syncronised servers in every locality... a movie wont be smaller than a gig each and downloading it on a local PC would consume a LOT OF bandwidth.
