International Media Distribution, a leading provider of in-language and multi-ethnic programming in the U.S., and Eros International, the largest international distributor of Indian films worldwide, have announced that Verizon FiOS TV customers can now enjoy Bollywood Hits On Demand movie titles on an individual basis without a monthly subscription.

“Verizon FiOS customers who want to enjoy Bollywood movies from time to time can now do so without having to commit to a monthly package,” said Ken Naz, President North America, Eros International. “Eros and International Media Distribution are pleased to expand the availability and enjoyment of Bollywood blockbusters, including many new releases, to as wide an audience as possible in an unparalleled all-digital and on-demand TV experience. We hope these films will find new audiences with mainstream viewers sampling the genre for the first time to discover the spectacular world of Bollywood at home.”
