Self Distribution Options For Film And Video

By Mikel Fair

What is SVOD? (Subscription Video On Demand)

The main things to keep in mind when monetizing your video content via SVOD are:

  • Tailor your content to your specific audience. SVOD content is successful when created for a niche group. Subscribers are more likely to sign up if it’s content that isn’t available anywhere else. These subscribers will also stick around and provide more lifetime value.
  • Release content on a regular basis and notify your subscribers when new content is added. If you release your content sporadically, subscribers are more likely to unsubscribe and stop paying for your channel.

What is TVOD? (Transactional Video On Demand?

The definition of TVOD is when your audience can choose to pay for individual videos (for purchase or rent), rather than subscribing to access your entire video library. TVOD is usually a supplement to an SVOD strategy. Examples of TVOD models include Amazon Prime Video or Google Play.
