The rise of Netflix serves as an exemplification in the discussion about the shift in viewership from television to live streaming. It is not just the young audience that is aiding the shift but the generation before it as well. The New Age Audience is more inclined towards watching movies without breaks, binge watch serials, and video on demands rather than watching a set itinerary.
Owing to this, the television networks are shifting their services online through OTT networks like YuppTV through which they are enabling users to watch their favorite programs anytime they wish. As time passed by the biggest of networks came up with their own live streaming platforms like hotstar, Sonyliv, etc., where they offered all the shows in live in real time with segregation of the previous episodes to catch up any time the audience considers.
Following Netflix, the networks are coming up with their own content in addition to the content by various production houses that are added periodically. This own content generated by the live streaming networks are made available to the audience for binge-watching leaving no room for any kind of pauses in the interim.
