With years of experience in the entertainment and creative arts industry, Chaitanya writes mostly about the current trends and opportunities in the industry. In his recent article about a major opportunity in the OTT industry, he explained that while India has around 40 OTT platforms, the businesses are missing on one major opportunity, i.e. pay-per-show microtransaction model. He explains that in instances people want to watch five shows from different OTT players, then the question remains, how many platforms to subscribe to? He explains that the current model to pay for streaming any content provides consumers with an all-or-nothing choice. Here is a glimpse to Chaitanya ’s writing “India currently has around 40 OTT platforms. While having so many platforms is good as it enables more investment, it poses a different kind of problem for the consumer, which is – “How many platforms am I going to subscribe to?” Here, there is a massive opportunity that all the platforms are missing.”
