Instead, it will rely on licensing content from the likes of Disney and Balaji Telefilm.
Unlike Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service which coast Rs.999 a year in India, Flipkart’s video streaming service will operate very differently.

For every Rs.100 spent on Flipkart order you earn 2 super coins and you can earn maximum of 50 super coins per order, coins will be credited to your account after the completion of the return period of all the items in the order. If you earn 300 super coins, you are eligible to join the Flipkart Plus membership, also no coins will be taken for Plus Membership.
The Walmart subsidiary will face stiff competition from India’s video streaming market. Along with international players like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, India also has its own collection of services like JioCinema, Hooq and Voot.
