Spuul enables you to get your movie fix and keep up with your favourite TV shows.
Headquartered in Singapore, Spuul was founded back in 2012 and is still going strong, with a wide catalogue of content available to movie fans from all across the world. According to the company, over 47 million registered users regularly access Spuul to enjoy Bollywood flicks or watch TV series.
Content is available in several languages, including Hindi, Telugu, Punjabi, Tamil and more. Plus, the company has partnerships with several prominent production companies, which ensures users get an infusion of fresh content on a regular basis. You can also watch TV channels via the platform, which is a nice perk.
Spuul offers a free version, but this only allows you to watch limited content with the occasional ad. Premium users, on the other hand, get access to unlimited movies and can download as many as they want on their mobile devices to enjoy offline. They also get rid of ads and can enjoy the app on multiple screens.
A Premium account costs INR99/month. Alternatively, you can pay in advance for an entire year and benefit from a discount – a yearly membership comes at INR999. Users can pay via credit/debit card, PayPal or Freecharge.
How does Spuul compare?
Spuul offers a variety of movies, most of them available with English subtitles. You can browse categories like True Stories, Critically Acclaimed, Classics and so on. Spuul also enables you to rent new releases. For these titles, a one-time rental fee allows you to watch the movie for 72 hours. Within that period, you can watch it as many times as you want.
Besides, the app also offers access to live TV channels, which means that you can keep up with news and programming on the go. Channels available on the service include News 24, PTC Punjabi, Sakshi TV, Al Jazeera and FTV India, among many others.
On the TV show front, there are several titles available for catch-up, which means that only a limited number of episodes are on the platform for a set period of time. Series are neatly categorised in Drama, Reality, Cookery and so on. Popular titles include Aakhir Bahu Bhi Toh Beti Hee Hai, Malini Iyer and Woh Rehne Wali Mehlon Ki. Most of these catch-up titles are available for free.
Does Spuul offer a free trial?
No, but there is a free version available, so you can easily test-drive the platform without reaching for your digital wallet. The free version comes with limited content, but it’s more than enough to help you figure out if it’s worth investing in a Premium membership.
How much data does Spuul use?
Content is available on Spuul in up to HD quality, but the amount of data you burn through will depend on your Internet connection and the device you’re streaming from. According to Spuul, a movie can consume between 150MB and 2GB worth of data. Not to worry, though – you will only get to 2GB if you’re watching on fast broadband in the best quality available. When streaming on mobile data, that likely won’t be the case.
If you’re worried about mobile data consumption, consider adjusting the settings to display lower quality renditions of videos. Or you can download titles to enjoy offline.
Spuul comes with great device compatibility, so you can easily tune in, whether you’re at home or on the go. The platform is available via web, or you can download the app to your smartphone/tablet from the App Store or Google Play. Moreover, Spuul is also available on Google Chromecast, Apple TV and select Android TVs, so watching on the big screen shouldn’t be a problem.
