  1. Education

Apart from the entertainment & media industry, the next sector that has been benefitting immensely from OTT apps is education. While online classes, learning courses, and teaching marketplaces have been around for such a long time, schools, colleges, and universities have started adopting Video-on-demand services and OTT platforms for eLearning.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, several eLearning platforms have been doing rounds for offering intuitive solutions in the education sector. These eLearning apps use VoD and Live Streaming in the background so that students can utilize the content later for tests and revisions. 


  1. Health & Fitness

During COVID-19 lockdown, at-home workouts became the most followed trend. In order to stay fit, people are accessing online tutorials, connecting with their personal trainers via online classes, and more. Considering the opportunities that come along with it, many startups and established businesses are heavily investing in it. For instance, Classpass is a perfect example of health & fitness OTT apps where people can actively connect with their trainers and watch videos on demand. 

When developing OTT apps for the health and fitness industry, you need to ensure that they are built for bigger screens in order to have better content clarity. For instance, building applications for Android TV, Apple TV, Smart TVs, and other platforms can enable users to have a wide exposure and understanding of the content. 


  1. Gaming

Lately, live game streaming has gained a lot of traction. These platforms allow gamers to record live gaming experiences and share videos on multiple channels. Dedicated and professional streamers often amalgamate entertaining commentary with high-level play and earn from subscriptions, sponsorships, and donations.
