The year 2020 started off to be a shaky and overwhelming reality to live in for all people globally. The Coronavirus pandemic forced people to get a grip of their precious lives for fear of losing their precious lives. People are practicing “self-quarantine” and “social distancing.”
But amidst this existential crisis, how is that we stay sane and entertained with our lives at home? OTT platforms like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon come to our aid to make our days better.
What’s more special about OTT releases than usual?
Unlike Coronavirus times, OTT releases are periodic and structured to keep audiences entertained in a balanced fashion. Of course, this does not nullify the fact that binge-watching was also on the rise. But the times have now changed. Entertainment and being entertained have become top priorities to distract from the looming fears and anxieties. And we have proudly become “couch potatoes” too.
Thankfully, OTT platforms have gone a few steps further to keep the entertainment alive. Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime are bringing additional entertainment to be devoid of boredom.

The element of excitement kicks in as some originals and series are pushed further from their original release dates.
