O.T.T. platforms provide a service that streams media/audios/videos to viewers over the internet. One membership is all that is needed to watch several shows and movies that too at home.
The covid-19 pandemic has increased the growth of the top subscription. Even though life is returning to normalcy, this trend of O.T.T. is here to stay. It seems to be a new alternative to watching films in theatres.
It became the most significant source of entertainment in this challenging time and saved time and money. Some of the most popular platforms available in India are Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Voot, and Sonyliv.
