Indian Film Industry to Go Online

Indians Abroad has a story about an impressive undertaking in the Indian film industry. GV Films Ltd will be distributing digitized versions of mainstream Indian films via the Internet. Imagine ITunes for Indian movies, with arguably much better prices ($1-$5 per flick.) GV Films has a collection of about 6,000 films, although they are working on acquiring the rights to more.

This is an awesome step forward for consumers. This was bound to happen sooner or later, I'm just surprised it's happening so soon. I wish I could say I'm surprised it's not happening in the US first. Between still-lagging adoption of broadband, and the US film industry's lack of imagination, it's not shocking that Bollywood beat Hollywood to the punch.
