Types of Monetization Available with Dacast

There are three methods of monetization offered by Dacast:


  • SVOD is a subscription-based method that allows viewers to have unlimited access to a video library for as long as their subscription lasts. Subscriptions are typically weekly, monthly or quarterly. This is a great monetization method if you have a large video-on-demand library. 
  • TVOD is most commonly known as pay-per-view. As the name suggests, viewers pay for what they want to watch. Pay-per-view is often used for one-time events, or for access to exclusive content for a limited period of time. 
  • AVOD refers to ad-based monetization. You have the option to serve ads on your content. Ads are funded by your advertisers, so rather than paying out of pocket for your content, your viewers pay for the content with a minute or so of their time.
