Covid-19 has altered how people consume media and entertainment content. Initially, the content was limited to television, radio, and cinema. However, with the digitalization of media and entertainment mediums, consumers can now access information or preferred channels with their digital devices at any time. To keep customers satisfied, major production houses in the media and entertainment service vertical are focusing aggressively on OTT platforms by releasing new, original content. Using messaging services, businesses can easily communicate with their customers. Enterprises can interact with their customers to deliver media and advertising content via rich messaging channels by utilising OTT messaging services.
One of the most popular monetization models is the subscription-based model, which requires a fixed payment for a set period of time. It is a business model in which the user must pay a subscription fee in order to access video streaming services. Depending on the service selected by the customer, the subscription fee may be charged daily, weekly, monthly, or annually. After paying for access, the user can watch any number of videos on any device with adequate internet access.
Because of the predictability of revenue for the company and the monthly fee for the customer, this model benefits both the company and the customer. Subscription pricing strategies can be developed based on functionality, discounted to encourage bulk purchases, metered based on usage levels, or optimised to reward loyalty. The subscription model is adjusted to motivate activity from geographic regions, is term-based to secure long-term commitments, and is adjusted in collaboration with partner promotions and benefits of a subscription model for sellers.
The subscription-based model is widely adopted by consumers worldwide because it allows them to pay for only the content they want, and it is one of the main reasons audiences do not prefer cable and other traditional providers as much.
