Jaman is a company that offers users a movie discovery site, allowing them to browse viewing options offered across the internet.

In its previous iteration, Jaman was one of the very first sites to offer view on demand of media on the internet. It allowed viewing on a variety of platforms via a downloadable P2P client, specializing in foreign and independent films.[2]

The company was founded by Gaurav Dhillon, who was the Chief Executive Officer of Informatica (NASDAQ: INFA), a Silicon Valley company that he co-founded in 1992.
