With the country pacing towards normalcy, the demand for audio OTT continues to soar. November continued to see high traffic.
It was only in October that a whopping 30 million tuned in to several audio OTT platforms.
The data has come from Kantar. To gauge user preference, Kantar, in collaboration with VTION™, launched an OTT Audience Measurement System in February this year. The first-of-its-kind, passive, continuous audience measurement service provides the industry with key metrics such as reach, time spent, platform and content choices, etc; based on a robust panel of over 9000 consumers across top nine cities (Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad and Lucknow/Kanpur).
As per the findings of the report, affluent, younger and female audiences are more engaged with OTT audio platforms. Also, evening and early night prime-time slots – both on weekdays as well as on the weekends-- remain the peak traffic time slots for the medium.
