Digital streaming gets a lock-in time Added on Mar 20, 2019 A new rule has been set up for digital streaming. It says that no new film will be streamed before eight weeks of its theatrical release. This rule holds good for big or small films announced Telugu Film Producers Council (TFPC). This new rule will be applicable from 1st of April. This decision has been taken because last year some films were streamed even before they could be taken off the theatres. This is affecting the collection of hit films.
