Users are very much welcome to share film information articles.
Years ago, we had clearly added "BO source" in the profile details list & gathered a collective response from the forum users on which website they follow. BOI was the one with most votes so we went with BOI.
Personally I've been following BOI as Film Information was not made available.
If someone says FI is not credible then it's unnecessary. The industry follows it. So basically it is left to user's choice on what they follow.
Btw BOI did try this subscription model which eventually didn't work out. Here also Film Information, the free sign up gives very limited access. Rest all is cost oriented.
Silver - Rs. 3500/- gives access to latest box office figures which you get for free in BOI itself.
Gold - Rs. 10,000/- & has recurring monthly charges.
So yeah this subscription model could also be the reason for limited people accessing it.
