The year 2023 has plenty in store, promising an exciting catalogue of films and TV shows, both regional and from across the globe. While popular streaming platforms such as Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ Hotstar, and Sony LIV lead the way in terms of both and quality in India, some of the lesser-known platforms such as Voot, LionsgatePlay, BookMyShow Stream, Hoichoi, Zee5, ShemarooMe, SunNXT, ManoramaMax and Aha have also claimed a stake in India’s OTT space.
There can be no arguments that streaming platforms have seen steady growth since the pandemic. While it has become evident that box-office numbers are back on the rise with record-breaking theatrical hits such as Avatar: The Way of Water and Pathaan, major regional releases continue to contemplate whether to release in theatres or on OTT.
Regardless of which films skip theatrical releases, the OTT ecosystem has had new subscribers in large numbers in the post-pandemic era and looks likely to grow even further. Netflix’s upcoming film releases of 2023 such as Extraction 2 starring Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba’s highly anticipated spin-off film Luther: The Fallen Sun, the Gal Gadot espionage thriller Heart of Stone, Damsel featuring Millie Bobby Brown, Angela Bassett, and Robin Wright, and Zack Snyder’s space epic Rebel Moon, have plenty of hype leading up to their releases. It has proved that there is still an audience for OTT releases.
TV shows such as Ted Lasso season 3 on Apple TV+, Daisy Jones and the Six and Gen V on Prime Video, The Last of Us, Succession season 4 and The Mandalorian season 3 on Disney+ Hotstar, have generated significant interest
