There is a prime reason why OTT platforms are gaining a lot of attention in these years. The dearth of the platform was the challenge being faced by good content creators including the off-beat or serious filmmakers. A mighty platform like YouTube was always free and there was revenue share through ad sense too but the issue is that the revenue shared by YouTube may is far too minimal. They might be ready to shell out a fortune for a run-of-the-mill movie of a noted star but will only be ready to pay miserly to a creator who has nothing to boast apart from the quality of his creation. There is space for OTT platforms that promotes well-curated quality movies. That might change the current scenario and will be fruitful for quality movie makers and the audience who wish to spend quality time.
