Bangalore, February 15 2016: We go to one provider for a home Internet connection -- and  WiFi router.  For our TV channels  we go to a dish or cable operator. For additional video-on-demand, we have to sign up with providers like Eros, Hungama, Yupp TV, Netflix etc. Why not get  all three with a single connection?
This is the compelling premise of  Lukup.  After testing the waters  for over a year in Bangalore, the  Lukup  player and the connected video services  goes  live in select areas in three more cities today  --Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune. You can check if your PIN code is covered  at Lukup.com -- and if so  you can have someone come and install the Lukup  device in your home  for Rs 6000,   plus a monthly subscription starting at Rs 990.
For this  you  get:  a bouquet of some 150 TV channels; an Internet connection   with 30 GB of data / month and speeds of 4 MBPS to 20 MBPS; 500 GB of cloud storage  to record programmes;  Rs 300 credit to purchase  additional TV channels or video-on-demand fare  and the ability to "CatchUp" -- ie go back and access a TV show or serial that you missed. A Godfather-like  'offer you can't refuse!'
Lukup's Managing  Director Kallol Borah says  the national capital region  will come on the map next -- and by mid 2017, some 47 cities will be offered the  Lukup service.
