The first morning of the new year brought a sun of new hopes and resolutions. While 2020 has more than taken away from giving, the OTT content and streaming platforms gave a tremendous opportunity to flourish when theaters closed, giving the smartphone-based audience a strong choice of entertainment. It can be assumed that the spectators who were imprisoned in the homes due to the lockdown in 2020 would have become accustomed to this new medium of entertainment and in 2021 this intimacy between the two is expected to increase.
But with this, the challenge of bringing fresh and effective content to OTT platforms has also increased, because many big players have come out in the competition. There are many interesting web series coming up on OTT platforms in the year 2021. Some of these are sequels and some are new.
