Pay-Per-View vs. Subscription: What’s the Difference?
Pay-Per-View vs. Subscription
When it comes to video monetization, a subscription requires a viewer to pay for unlimited access to your content over a fixed amount of time.
Pay-per-view, on the other hand, requires viewers to pay for access to individual pieces of content.
To put these two video monetization methods into perspective, someone can set up a biannually subscription where viewers can watch uploaded content as much as they like over that year. Someone else can set up a pay-per-view for a two-hour program, where the viewer gets to watch only that program and nothing more.
Please note that a subscription enables you to automatically bill on a recurring subscription cycle, while pay-per-view is a single payment billing model.
