Kerala To Launch India’s First Government-owned OTT Platform 

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is all set to launch the OTT platform at the Kairali Theatre, which will be called CSpace.

With the launch of CSpace, Kerala is assured to make waves in the digital entertainment realm. CSpace is India’s first government-owned OTT platform. It will make its debut on Thursday, March 7. CSpace aims to deliver content that will provide entertainment and a blend of information to its users.

According to Hindustan Times, Shaji N. Karun, noted film director and Chairman of Kerala State Film Development Corporation,

CSpace is essentially a response to the growing imbalances and multifarious challenges in the OTT sector in terms of content selection and propagation

KSFDC is in charge of managing CSpace, a state-owned organization charged with promoting Malayalam film and the industry on behalf of the Kerala government’s Department of Cultural Affairs. A curator panel of 60 individuals, including distinguished cultural figures from the state like Benyamin, OV Usha, Santhosh Sivan, Shyamaprasad, Sunny Joseph, and Jeo Baby, was established by KSFDC to choose and approve the content. Three curators from the panel will assess each piece of content that is submitted to the site based on its artistic, cultural, and entertainment value.

The site will exclusively display content that has been recommended by the curators. According to Karun, the curators have chosen 42 films total—35 feature films, 6 documentaries, and 1 short film—for the initial phase of CSpace. There will also be a selection of films that have played at important film festivals or won national or state honours.

The platform will operate on a pay-per-view basis, and will allow its users to watch a feature film for ₹75 and other content for a lesser price. Half of the amount charged goes to the content provider. Viewers can download the app from Google’s Play Store on March 7.
