One major advantage that OTT has is that unlike theatres, there is no pressure on a movie to perform well in the first few days or weeks

“The scale of people watching OTT across metros, Tier1, Tier-II cities, and smaller towns is fast equalizing and soon there won’t be any skew towards a particular geography”, said Sidharth Shakdher, EVP & CMO of one of the OTT platforms, Disney+ Hotstar.  As a result, many players want to benefit from the booming business. Netflix and Amazon Prime are two of the most popular OTT services available today. Both have excellent original material as well as a large collection of films and programs.
