The OTT market is growing and becoming very competitive, no news there. OTT service providers have now to look for ways to keep users engaged with their platform.
We all know that the core to a successful OTT platform is outstanding content, but if the viewing experience is confusing and frustrating, your audience will not stick around. Offering a more personalised user experience is as important as the quality of your content, so make sure that when you’re looking to build an OTT Platform, the UX is part of the development process.
Right now, the act of “watching TV” has changed, and we don’t just watch something while comfortably sitting on our couch, in a large screen. Content is watched anywhere, at any time, and we only need a compatible OTT device connected to the internet. Think of how massively this increases on how many devices you’ll need to guarantee a smooth UX.
The biggest goal of the UX is to enable users to find the content they want. To do that, it’s important to consider some basic features:
The UX design improves the usability, ease of use, and satisfaction provided in the interaction between the customer and the platform. In total, a study from Parks Associates found that one-fifth of households cancel an OTT subscription based on an inability to find something to watch.
Yes, content is king, but it has found its match.
YES. As the OTT market grows, the development teams involved in the creation processes also improve their technical knowledge to match’s customer’s behaviour.
From the implementation to design, and of course the user experience, all of these steps are being taken in consideration. Features such as content preview, recommendation engine, related content, personalized notifications are just some of the things being considered.
The biggest benefit for you is that with UX focused on the optimization of your platform, it instantly becomes enjoyable for the viewers to use.
