OTT Streaming Services & Piracy in India

by | Nov 6, 2021 | 0 comments

Spoilt for Choices

There are more than 40 OTT platforms in India that offer original and exclusive content.  At least 5 new OTT platforms are launched every month. Why then do customers in India still seek out and watch pirated content?

You Don’t Find What You Need

Take the case of Naveen, a middle-level executive.  He subscribes to Amazon Prime and Sony Liv but then many of his favorite films and TV shows are not available on either of these platforms.

These OTT platforms compete with each other by offering “exclusive content” and “original programming” and that is exactly where the problem lies.  It is not financially viable or practical to subscribe to all OTT platforms.

With this multitude of new entrants in the OTT space, content aggregation has become fragmented.  It is impossible for any individual platform to provide enough choice to end consumers. In the absence of a legal one-stop shop for popular movies, TV shows, web series, sporting events, etc., people resort to pirated content.

Pirates Offer This Choice

However, pirates who run illegal streaming services aggregate content from multiple video streaming services into a single interface.  Open-source video players and the same technology that OTT platforms use make this possible.

What Should OTT Platforms Do?

In addition to implementing a slew of security measures like DRM, watermarking, fingerprinting, etc., they should enlist the services of companies that offer customized anti piracy solutions for OTT platforms.
