With 180 million TV households, 538m smartphone users, 1.2 billion telecoms subscriptions and an M&E sector worth 2.1 trillion INR (or 26.2 bn US dollars), India is surely one of the most fascinating and diverse OTT markets in the world.

– How Amazon and Netflix (rank outsiders to Indian media until five years ago) have taken over Indian consumers
– Why other streamers have failed to crack India
– The impact of new technologies on the Indian OTT industry
– And takeaways for those watching on how to enter and survive in India
