In this pilot, Eros Now uploaded content to a central content repository, built on Microsoft Azure, that can quickly process large volumes of data to distribute to hubs.

Consumers then connect to these hubs to securely download content to their mobile devices without internet connectivity.

By using this system, consumers in low connectivity regions could access Eros Now’s rich media content and pay for services in modes they prefer, the companies said.
