Will the download version of Lock Up’s Tamilrockers series affect Zee5’s viewing audience?
While the technology has brought many benefits, there are a few issues that surpass the goodness. Each creator strives to create content that is unique and can entertain the audience. It’s a huge blow when piracy overshadows the hard work put into the content creation process.
In this case, Lock Up is a recognizable story. The release of Lock Up on Tamilrockers, the country’s largest torrent site for series, movies and shows, leaked the full movie before it was released. Tamilrockers allows for free downloading and streaming of shows. Modern web series and online streaming platforms rely heavily on opening week traffic as a major source of return on investment.
With the emergence of Tamilrockers and other online streaming sites for web series, creators and digital streaming partners face a terrifying task of dealing with this situation. Also taking into account the country’s current economic status, it is only through web series that the industry can make money.
However, Lock Up is released at the right time and given the responses received, things look good. Viewers around the world are invested in the events of the show and would like to watch it and have a first-hand experience. Another aspect to consider is that many people have opted to subscribe to OTT platforms for entertainment purposes during such times. They prefer to make use of the money spent instead of looking for an illegal 480P or 720P printed version of the show.
