Top 10 Disruptive Digital Media Houses to Watch Out for in 2019-20
  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  
   

NEW DELHI, June 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

Heads-Up:  

When the project began, the list of possible digital media houses numbered more than four dozen. TBMG's top 10 list was determined fairly late in the process, considering there were big names involved but some of them fell off the list because it clearly came out that strong reputations notwithstanding, they did not meet the criteria for inclusion.

Yes, they were accomplished in their own way, but their accomplishments did not seem to speak in sync with today's need for inspiring content.  

More so, with the rise of disruptive young online media, traditional media has new contenders vying for readership share in the market. The Digital India movement and proliferation of internet across the country, content consumption trends have significantly changed in the last three years. Mobile devices like smartphones and tablets are overtaking conventional medium as preferred sources of news and information.

This trend is supported by the increasing internet speed which now provides consumers with the ability to access the content of their choice, anytime and from anywhere. Consumers no longer have to rely on TV schedules and newspaper deliveries to get their daily news update.

Media consumption trend in India has shown a significant shift from traditional channels to new (digital) media outfits. This rise of 'young turks' in the market is challenging traditional media barons, who have until now maintained monopoly and supremacy as the authority for news in the country.

New disruptive and ground-breaking online media influencers are making inlets into the consumers' minds through innovative approaches to storytelling in multimedia formats. This trend also empowers consumers, who now have the ability to filter out content, rely on multiple sources, and choose their preferred way to consume news and news-related content.
