Subscription cancellations are also being caused by higher prices and low-quality content. During the COVID -19 pandemic, film studios and content creators have been hit hard by cinema complex/hall closures. National producers are increasingly turning to OTT to deal with the situation.

People are wary of going to theatres to watch entertainment content, so OTT media platforms have grown in popularity. Netflix, for example, has stepped in to fill the void.
