In the absence of any central measurement, it’s very difficult to gauge which shows or films delivered audience on streaming, and which ones fell short. Last year, Netflix launched its Top 10 site, a praise-worthy initiative to let the industry know how various films and series are performing on the platform.

Since 2018-19, Ormax Media has been extensively working to build industry data in this fast-growing category in India. Through our various products and tracks, we now have sufficient data points to monitor the evolution of the streaming category, especially since the onset of the pandemic in 2020. This prompted us to release our new report Streaming Originals in India: Mid-year Review (Jan-Jun 2022).

The report focuses only on original content, and does not cover other ‘non-original’ content on streaming, such as theatrical films, catch-up television, sports, etc.
