The internet has impacted the way we engage with the videos. Companies can now deliver content either through wired or through wireless solutions. It has led to profound innovation in the way we view content. Millennials and Generation Z now opt for ‘Video on Demand.’ It means that they see content as per their requirement, not when it is aired as per the wish of the broadcaster.
TVOD – Transactional video on demand- is when users buy content on a pay-per-view-basis. TVOD offers recently released content for a bunch of individuals- friends and family- to have an online theatre-like experience. It provides rights holders with higher revenues by giving users timely access to brand new movies and web series. The key to retaining customers is attractive price incentives.
There has been a worldwide decline in the attendance of the cinema audience. It is because of the quality of experience in a cinema is affected by externalities like others’ behaviour. In this fast day and age, it becomes difficult to get some time for entertainment according to the announced schedule of cinema.

The problems mentioned above presented a market gap in the form of an online platform for the multipurpose social experience of a theatre screening.
