OTT Platform Innovation Challenge 2022
Though the mass people of Bangladesh are watching the contents of OTT platforms on a large scale, it has not still reached its full potential. A blended OTT platform system consisting of education & entertainment has the most impact on the mass. The reasons behind the problem are as follows-
- Lack of OTT platforms disseminating government visions
- Lack of OTT platforms to facilitate User-Generated Content creation
- Absence of quality engaging content for targeting the youth
- Lack of efficient AI use to analyze consumer behavior to provide preferred contents
- Lack of blockchain usage ensuring intellectual ownership of contents verification to help pay creators
- Absence of collaboration with Govt., Private Sectors, INGO, NGO, Development Sectors.
- Absence of contents specifically targeting future ready citizen
Once the above-mentioned challenges are addressed, the intended benefits likely to be achieved are as follows but not limited to:
- The citizens will have better access to information regarding government services and initiatives through OTT platform. This will help them improve their quality of life.
- AI will help in producing the content of people’s choice, weed out the content of religious, political, or social bias, and help streamers find tips for unblocking geo-restricted libraries from top streaming services.
- With high-quality edutainment content, this platform will promote a better culture that will help the young generation build a richer mindset.
- With the integration of social values in the content, criminal tendency and extremism will reduce and nationalism will be instilled among the youth.
- The platform will help independent content creators to emerge on a broader scale, as here they can upload their content for a nationwide promotion for a minimum charge.
- Blockchain usage will prevent content theft and ensure royalty payment for artists.
- Besides having a content-consuming platform, content creators will have access to a content creation resource platform (stock footage/animation/template) that will reflect the Bangladeshi culture and heritage.
- Once the website has a constant and regular input of content, the content consumption pattern from website views can be utilized to generate insights from website analytics in identifying the subjects of public interest. Therefore, the government will better understand the citizens’ mindset.

- Platform in edutainment format
