The Kerala State Government’s cutting-edge OTT platform, named ‘CSpace,’ will go live on November 1- the state’s formation day (Kerala Piravi).
The announcement about the platform was made in July 2021, and discussions on the legal and technical aspects have been ongoing in the last few months. The proposed plan was to launch the OTT platform in collaboration with an already existing platform.
The Kerala government is planning to promote small-budget or award-winning feature films that might not have received a platform that is accessible to the common public. Instead of buying out movies from the makers, the Kerala State Government is aiming to split the revenue earned between the OTT platform and the production house on a percentage basis.
With the launch of CSpace, Kerala will become the first state in India to have a state-owned OTT platform.
