If you are addicted to Bollywood or Indian cinema, being able to watch Bollywood movies online, or listen to the music can really make your day. It can also save you money. Most of the reputable sites charge a fee, either monthly, or by the movie. That fee even at 19.99 a month, may be considerably more cost effective than going out to the movies or buying your own Bollywood videos offline. But where do you watch Bollywood movies online?

Bollygrounds.com is currently the most popular site for watching Bollywood movies online. You do have to pay to join, but they offer a three day trail membership. They stream Bollywood movies and more right to your PC. The twenty dollar a month fee can be very worth it, if you tend not to go to the movies, and prefer being able to watch what you want, when you want it. They also have cricket and music videos, as well as access to Indian serials. Bollygrounds.com is constantly updating it’s content and subscriptions, so you are always getting more for your money then the week before. It’s a great site and well worth checking out for three days for 5 USD. The three day trail access access will not get you access to the serials.
Bollywood.tv is the new site on the block, and a very impressive site it is. They are owned by Opus Media, a content rights acquisition company. You need windows Media player and their own “EdgeStream” software to stream videos from them. The site is not so easy to navigate as Bollygrounds.com but unlike Bollygrounds.com they provide a synopsis of each movie. They have a variety of subscriptions plans and take many different currencies and payment methods. Opus Media has plans for more sites and we can’t wait to see the results of those plans.
Eros Entertainment also has a very nice site. Eros is the largest distributor of Bollywood movies in the world, and you can do everything from buying Bollywood movies to watching the “Videos on Demand”. It’s a paid subscription site with a number of flexible subscription plans.
Why are these all pay sites?
Because licenses to show movies cost money. While you may come across more than a few sites that will let you download Bollywood movies for free, the legality of those sites is debatable at best. Illegal download sites pop up quickly and disappear just as quickly and are best avoided.
Whether you are already addicted to Bollywood, or want to watch something new and different for the first time, these sites all have a lot to offer. Having access to Bollywood movies, all day, everyday, without the hassle of having to run to the store and back can add a smile to your day, and save you time and money besides.
