What Is T-VOD Or Pay-Per-View In OTT?

T-VOD is also known as transactional video on demand or pay-per-view. In this case, one can rent a movie for a specific time on platforms like Zee5. Even if you have a Zee5 subscription, you have to pay an additional amount to watch RRR from your home, at least for the first few weeks of its OTT release.

On top of Zee5, the Hindi version of RRR will be available for rent on the BookMyShow streaming platform. As per the listing, you can rent an RRR movie for Rs. 349 or you can buy the movie (digital copy) for Rs. 899. The Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam versions of RRR will be available on Zee5 starting 20th May 2022.
