Cinematic VR and Instant Returns on Investment, Part II

(Note: Videos are mildly NSFW. Those without VR headsets can choose the anaglyph option and use red-cyan glasses)

“The proof is in the pudding,” to quote a more palatable one, than the overused; “Content is King”.

After an earlier article I’d written: “Insta-ROI and Cinematic VR,” I got a few emails from producers asking to explain more. One of them has accepted there’s no free lunch, and so I’ve scored a consultation gig.

The Secret to Insta-ROI with VR OTT

So, yet another OTT platform launches in India – Amazon PrimeVideo. From top of mind recall, there is:

HotStar VOOT Reliance Jio Netflix Spuul ALT Digital YuppTV SonyLIV

Some of these platforms might soon shut shop, I’d imagine, given they are all digging into the same pie – India’s emerging digital generation.
