#TwitterChat: Solving the OTT content conundrum with Rajnish Lall
Study after study have showcased how content is the mainstay of OTT platforms. As per a report by PwC, Netflix is expected to invest Rs 500 crore – Rs 600 crore per year in original content in India. Similarly, in early 2018, Amazon announced that it would be investing about Rs 2,000 crore on original content in India. Local players such as Hotstar and Voot hae also upped their content game, besides having access to their respective parent companies’ extensive regional and local content library.
From catch-up shows to short format web series to long form Originals like ‘Delhi Crime’ – content on OTT platforms is fast evolving. With young Indians, under 35 years of age, accounting for 89 per cent of the total Indian OTT video content platform users (as per Counterpoint Research survey), creating content that gets traction has become all the more challenging.
