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 an annual 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.
