Walmart isn’t settling even after a grand acquisition. New sources from Bloomberg, the homegrown online retailer, which was mostly acquired by American’s Walmart last year in a fierce battle with Amazon.
This news was broke out by Bloomberg today morning, as it claims to have some news from the company’s internal resources.
According to some cited sources by Bloomberg, these plans of unveiling a new streaming service is discussed as a strategy by its (Flipkart’s) internal members.
It’s known, Flipkart wouldn’t be producing the content directly, but shall outsource from other providers like Balaji Telefilms or Walt Disney pictures.
Walmart already owns Vudu, a streaming service where it produces original content.
Indian natives like JioCinema, Voot, Hooq, etc are minors just arising in the subcontinent. They’ve pulled enough audience either through their subscribers base or fine content.
As India’s going to have at least a billion smartphones by the next five years, companies like Walmart, Amazon’s Prime, Netflix and Disney owned Hotstar wouldn’t step back from the streaming battle that easily.
How to become a Plus Member:
Unlike Amazon’s Prime, a person couldn’t gain the Plus member’s position in Flipkart by buying a plan, as there isn’t one. Instead, the only and current way of becoming a Plus Member is by earnings Loyalty points in the platform. And those loyalty points are earned through spending! For every Rs.100 spent on the platform, by phone any goods, the customer shall earn two loyalty points. And to turn as a Plus Member, he or she needs to gain at least 300 loyalty points. Well, that could be easy and hard. Purchasing the membership just like Amazon Prime’s is direct and simple. It’s been worth too!
Hope Flipkart may introduce such pricing plans to customers.
