Cheap data tariffs, the availability of affordable smartphones, coupled with increased viewership during the pandemic-induced lockdown have led to the massive growth of Over The Top (OTT) players like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+Hotstar.
“India has the highest viewing of films on Netflix globally and over the last year, 80 percent of our members in India chose to watch a film every week,” Netflix India vice president (Content) Monika Shergill said in a blog post, The New Indian Express (TNIE) reported, quoting PTI.
“The viewing for non-fiction series on Netflix in India grew more than 250 percent in 2020 over 2019,” she said.
