The concept of home entertainment has evolved and Indian audience have become quite familiar with the OTT streaming platforms. During the period of lockdown, OTT platforms have seen a surge in consumption and subscriber count.

It has paved the way for creation of fresh digital content and hence web series has gained quite popularity among certain age groups. Popular OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Hoichoi, Voot, Zee5, TVF Play etc are gradually capturing the market.

The best part is that Assamese content creators, musicians, actors and sound recordists are getting an opportunity to showcase their content and talent to a larger audience, thanks to the OTT platforms.
