DCB works across all mobile devices and it is accessible to any user having a subscription or prepaid plan with a telecom operator. Direct carrier billing is secure.

Consumers do not need to provide any sensitive personal data such as credit card or banking information. Direct carrier billing allows users to pay OTT subscription fees as part of their monthly data bills or telephone bills as many OTT subscribers with low or average disposable income cannot make payment through credit cards. OTT providers are leveraging telecom billing systems to reach new customers, which would otherwise make it unable to sign up due to payment difficulties.

Analyst Review

According to top CXOs of leading companies, rise in adoption of smartphones and internet has drastically changed the way content is delivered in Indonesia. Growth of ad-supported OTT media presents a tremendous opportunity for advertisers as even premium broadcasters are forced to bring their programming to smaller screen to protect revenue. 

This is creating new ad placements that combine attention-grabbing quality of television content with highly targeted impressions of digital channels. In addition, it is important to consider the buying methods that are supported by a particular partner. In the realm of OTT, direct buys from publishers or platforms still account for the major share of inventory sold. Moreover, video and audio content are currently being streamed on smartphones and tablets, owing to ease of accessibility. In Indonesia, adoption of 4G network has increased with less challenges. 

Telecommunication operators of the country have deployed 4G networks in major cities, which further fuels demand for OTT services and augments growth of the market. Availability of strong 4G network, along with emerging 5G technology and high speed and low latency network is anticipated to enable superior video experience with availability of large content libraries to users, which is projected to fuel adoption of over-the-top services in Indonesia. The over-the-top service market in Indonesia is fragmented and competitive, owing to presence of well-diversified international and regional vendors. However, continuous increase in presence of international vendors in the country makes the market highly competitive.

Thus, OTT platform serves as a popular approach, which is used by several OTT service providers. 
Currently, key players in the Indonesia OTT market focus on user-generated content (UGC) model with advertising support such as YouTube,, or movie sites such as Though the market is currently dominated by advertisement-based revenue models, subscription-based revenue models are expected to witness increase in adoption in the upcoming years.
