OTT Media and Content Regulation: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
The emergence of over-the-top (OTT) media is increasingly impacting audiences in Malaysia. We undertook a systematic review and meta-analysis to examine the relationship between censorship and explicit inappropriate content aired through OTT media platforms, such as obscenity, harmful adult content, X-rated content, porno, sex, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) elements. The method of Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) was adopted, whilst Scopus and Web of Science (WoS) databases were the main platforms to source for articles. Finally, a few recommendations have been put forward at the end of this paper for the reference of future research.
