Video on demand

av | maj 22, 2020

After a successful launch of live streaming as a service we’ve now added video on demand as a new feature to TicketCo Media Services. This offer yet another great tool for monetising digital content.

TicketCo Media Services is a streaming service for digital content that is built into the existing TicketCo platform. This offers event organisers the ability to sell pay-per-view tickets for both live streams and video content.

The TicketCo platform has hosted ten-thousands of events and processed millions of transactions, and even before the deployment of TicketCo Media Services it was one of the smoothest, abundant, and most user friendly event payments solutions on the market.

Monetising digital content

When COVID-19 hit the event industry, TicketCo reacted quickly and innovated by creating TicketCo Media Services – a pay-per-view live streaming service built into the TicketCo platform. Besides being able to monetise on live streams, another benefit for event organisers is the ability use the existing platform to up-sell, and combine physical and virtual tickets.

Live streaming was one of two core parts of the streaming service. The second part which is released now is a video on demand component for the TicketCo Media Services product.

The event organiser can upload pre-made video content into the streaming service and sell the content to viewers. A typical use case scenario is that a event organiser runs a live stream, records it and continues the monetisation of the digital content after the initial live stream. This is achieved by uploading the recorded live-stream to TicketCo and sell pay per view tickets. In effect you can monetise the digital content twice.
