Network owners can create and manage channel packages on their Streaming platform network for a fraction of the cost of traditional middleware. Using the account dashboard, admins can set retail prices for individual channels or bundle them depending on their subscribers’ preferences. Compared to a traditional TV provider, subscribers can select only the content they want without having to buy a bundled package.
The turnkey middleware allows the network owner to deliver and monetize live and VOD content anywhere in the world to many compatible devices, including viewers on the web, set top boxes, and mobile devices (such as Android, iPhone/iPad, Blackberry). The middleware combined with the Streaming platform platform allows network owners to easily manage their subscribers, track content owner royalties, and create financial reports from the easy-to-use dashboard.
