      Types of Monetization Available with Dacast

      There are three methods of monetization offered by Dacast: SVOD, TVOD, and AVOD. 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. TVOD is most commonly known as pay-per-view. As the name suggests, viewers pay for what they want to watch. 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, your viewers pay for the content with a minute or so of their time. Any questions or need help/access to this feature? Please contact us. Not yet a Dacast user, and interested in trying Dacast risk-free for 30 days? Sign up today to get started.
