Moreover, there is another player who made it to the list named GTPL Hathway, a cable TV major. The company has launched a platform named ‘Genie+’ services under a partnership with 15 OTT apps.

All these developments are taking place due to the regular decline seen in the user base of linear TV. The aggregation of the OTT platforms will help them retain their customers and attract more with diversified services.
