Binge watching has become one of the more popular buzzwords in the last couple of years in India. The primary reasons for the meteoric rise of online consumption of digital content have been affordable gadgets and a surreal drop in internet data prices. While the tools and services required to consume digital content are now more accessible, the quality and quantity of digital content itself have increased substantially even rivalling more traditional mediums.
But how do Indians consume digital content in 2018? The first and the most obvious answer will be smartphones, and they make complete sense. The second choice is a laptop which lacks the portability of a smartphone but provides a much better viewing experience. The third and according to us the best way to stream digital content is through smart TVs which is still a minority in India but is growing at a rapid pace, and the credit goes to Flipkart.
Be it a pair of shoes or a smartphone, Flipkart has changed the way India shops through its swift service, exciting offers and features. They have done the same with smart TVs through exclusive partnerships with global brands like Xiaomi and Vu to offer affordable smart TVs in India. Flipkart has now partnered with French Brand Thomson to launch their smart TVs in India.
Commenting on the exclusive launch of Thomson smart TVs on Flipkart, Sandeep Karwa, head of TV & Large appliance said, “Flipkart ensures a shopping experience for customers that is driven by a diverse selection, offering them with best in class technology at affordable prices. Thomson, a trusted brand worldwide, comes with a global legacy in technology and innovation. Our exclusive partnership with Thomson offers our shoppers a complete package of smart technology and great features at an aggressive price, making it a compelling offer and we are confident this would be another best seller on Flipkart. Replicating our strategy for smartphones, this launch marries well into our commitment of driving innovation in the market while we continue to be India’s most trusted destination for TVs”
