Multiplex To Stay Away from OTT Releases

Multiplex To Stay Away from OTT Releases

Major Multiplex Chains are gearing up to become Operational from October 15th in whichever state the theatres are allowed to reopen. The Multiplex Chains set up a policy not to play content that had premiered on the OTT platforms.

Until the filmmakers ready with content to release, the Multiplex Chains are planning to screen the re-runs and available new content. It is already known to our readers that only 50% of occupancy is allowed in the theaters. They are expecting it to be scaled up to 75% by Diwali. 

On the other side, there is no clarity about what the Single Screen theaters of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are planning. Single Screen theaters when opened are unlikely to take up the policy of not screening OTT Releases. But even then, it has to be seen how the OTT Platforms react.
