The year 2020 was dominated by the OTT networks as far as the entertainment of audiences was concerned. We had theatres close down as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the OTT networks took over as the usage of online content has grown extensively.
A lot of films that were planned for theatre release opted for an online premiere on OTT channels, and the audience was introduced to some of the best web shows such as Paatal Lok, Mirzapur season2, Asur, Special Ops, etc.
Considering that the coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing, the OTT platforms are still going to rule 2021. As we brace for the end of 2020 with the arrival of films and web series such as Coolie No.1, We Can Be Heroes, AK vs AK, Shakeela, Wonder Woman 1984, and Criminal Justice: behind Closed Doors, the January 2021 release schedule is no less exciting either.
