While Dubai is technologically advanced, the adaptation of new technologies like AI in OTT is still in nascent stages. VOD OTT aimed to integrate advanced technologies for a better user experience.
One of the major challenges in the Dubai region is the lack of localized content that caters to the diverse population. VOD OTT saw this as an opportunity to fill the gap.
Dubai has specific regulations concerning media and entertainment, which can be a barrier for new entrants. VOD OTT, with its local understanding, aimed to navigate these smoothly.
With more OTT services entering the market, there is a fragmentation that confuses consumers. VOD OTT aimed to offer a one-stop solution for diverse entertainment needs.
Many existing OTT platforms come with high subscription fees, making it less accessible for a broader audience. VOD OTT aimed to offer a more affordable solution.
The existing platforms often lacked a user-friendly interface and features, leading to a less engaging user experience. VOD OTT wanted to enhance this aspect significantly.
Monetizing content at scale has been a challenge in the MENA region, including Dubai. VOD OTT aimed to tackle this by offering various subscription models and ad-based revenues.
