India’s video streaming industry is huge with more than 40 operators. Global streaming service providers such as Hotstar (Disney-owned), Netflix and Amazon compete with domestic service providers such as Voot, MX Player, Zee5, Gaana, as well as a host of regional and ultra-localized players.

The growing number of OTT players is translating into more content and experiences for consumers, and, of course, more opportunities for advertisers to engage with them. However, in such diverse and vast market is important to have a clear view of the consumers’ profile in order to target audiences correctly.
