I've recently founded a company called GetFilmi (http://getfilmi.com) which aims to make it easier than ever to watch quality Indian cinema online. Some of you may already have checked it out & signed up; our member service just went live for $7.99 per month (with a free month to start) and I've been working with some great studios, filmmakers and distributors in Bombay and elsewhere to build our catalog through 2013.
*I'm proud to tell you that GetFilmi's just been approved for the CFC Media Lab's ideaBoost website and with your help we can be chosen to join their business accelerator program. Simply click through to our page on ideaBOOST and then the pink button to Boost GetFilmi!

Thank you for your support,
What Is ideaBOOST?
ideaBOOST is a business accelerator with a difference (organized by the Canadian Film Centre) -- a bootcamp for companies that want to navigate an entertainment ecosystem that has been radically disrupted by new technologies and demanding audience expectations.
How To Support GetFilmi by 'BOOSTING'!
Companies from across Canada have submitted their ideas to ideaBOOST. Now it's up to you to push GetFilmi to the shortlist. You can help us accumulate points by liking or tweeting our idea page, however, the most powerful way to show your support is to give us a BOOST by subscribing with your email address.
Submitting your email is worth 10 points, while liking or tweeting is each worth 1 point. You can only submit your email once per voting period, but you can like or tweet our idea page once a day to help us get more votes!
After BOOSTING Us...
If GetFilmi is selected thanks to your help, you will be contacted and have the chance to join this exciting process, including access to public demo nights; the ability to offer feedback on early versions of our product (yes this means watching some great Indian cinema for free - including classics like Mughal e Azam and brand new releases like Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (online next month!); and be part of the team that helps shape the future of Indian cinema as we know it!
Why are we part of ideaBOOST?
Being part of the ideaBOOST accelerator will help us develop tools we need to make it even easier for you to watch the great films you love on tablets, mobile phones and connected TVs - with planning and a little investment we are aiming to be in the Apple iTunes store with apps this July (Android, Roku, Boxee, Google TV etc to follow!)
