YouTube presents Box Office for all the Bollywood movies lovers out there in India; premieres with Band Baaja Baaraat

Here's a good new for all the movie lovers in India. YouTube has tied up with Intel to introduced its new service dubbed as Box Office to showcase latest blockbusters online.

The premiere show on the YouTube Box Office in India started with Yash Raj Film's Band Baaja Baaraat. Viewers have the option to enjoy movies in 720p and 1080p apart from the other standard resolutions.

YouTube's Box Office page also engages viewers with its Movie Trivia, Quizzes and Intel Win An Island contest. Featured movies on this exclusive Box Office channel will come without deleted scenes and it will offer making of the movie and other features as well.

Although, there is already a channel to view movies for free on the YouTube, this initiative has the potential to curb piracy if the big releases are brought to this online channel soon within its launch. However, there are many other factors in India that can mar the experience of long duration online video viewing such as poor broadband services and others.

With Netflix making inroads into the Indian market and Google introducing movie rental services, the online movie streaming business bets big in the coming days. An ad supported channel, the YouTube Box Office will screen a blockbuster every month. You can log on to www.youtube.com/BoxOffice to enjoy your show.
