Amidst the time of the corona virus pandemic, the OTT platforms have greatly benefited from it and made it a game-changer. The streaming services have not only made films more accessible but also made a variety of new releases affordable with the comfort of watching it at your own home.

Although it is not unusual for streaming services to release original content on their websites and apps, the COVID-19 lock down era observed a change in this practice. That is because many films which were scheduled for big releases i.e. on multiplexes have now shifted to an OTT release. Although the ban on cinema halls is slowly being lifted, the lock down crisis has undoubtedly benefited the digital space a lot.
