In five years, the Indian Internet traffic will be the equivalent of 12 billion DVDs per year, 1 billion DVDs per month or 1 million DVDs per hour. How curious they use that somewhat outdated technology storage to illustrate the example. Anyway.

Wow, a million DVDs per hour. I could see that though, that doesn't even seem that bad. 2025 on the other hand, phew.

Looks like an amazing time to be investing in India...guess I know where I'm targeting next...and the market is there...wooooo I feel like a genius but really you guys just put 2 & 2 together for me :D!


How curious they use that somewhat outdated technology storage to illustrate the example. Anyway.

True, but DVD is something that people in general have some sort of knowledge of. Probably not by GB's, but it's still more common than a BluRay disc would be, and since CD's we're not used that widely as video containers, DVD is an easy choice here.

But yeah, video content worldwide is the main thing nowadays anyway, so as long as the connection speeds can keep up it's just going to grow anyway.

You're damn right. Please go ahead and take action :D

I still have a little ways to go before I can be international :( I have to double down on my English markets just to establish myself, after that it's all paying out translators and getting it out there :D


Yeah paying translators is a big expense, but eventually it will pay off.

Agreed. If you have a viable market, then not taking advantage of it is just plain dumb. But for that you need native translators, and they don't come all that cheap - yet they'll pay it back soon, as using automatic translation will just make your site look like a scam and diminish any hope of earnings.
