The Art of Revisiting Films
Since the start of the introduction of the films in our daily lives and common communities, we have been watching them multiple times. Have we asked ourselves this question, “Why do we watch films or web series more than once?”. Don’t we all contemplate such questions over the course of our lives? I certainly do. What factors drive such impulsive actions. Let’s dive into the art of revisiting films. As per a study of Netflix watch-time and the rising subscriber base geography-wise at Backlinko.com, “Netflix subscribers spend an average of 3.2 hours per day watching content on the platform. Netflix’s mobile app for iOS & Android was downloaded 19 million times in January 2021 alone.” Woah! That’s a huge number! All we have seen is an upward trend rocketing exponentially in Netflix’s charts. Similar trends are visible in the charts of other OTT service providers. What is your favorite OTT channel?
