Films have evolved from being released only in theaters to being released in OTT platforms alongside theatrical releases. This change is a welcome one for many who can now enjoy the films that they want to see at the comforts of their own home instead of having to trudge off to a theater every time a new one comes out.
While some films are still a spectacle that deserve to watched in theaters while others are from small production houses and directors that do require the patronage of the audience visiting the theaters, others can simply be watch via OTT services.
The biggest OTT service in India is Disney+ Hotstar which was formerly just known as Hotstar. Like all the other major OTT platforms Disney+ Hotstar also releases new content on its platform regularly to keep the audience engaged.
