Short Form Videos
Short form videos are videos that play immediately when the viewer selects one of your shows. Videos are not organized into series and episodes which act more like on-demand shows on Netflix or Hulu. For series and episode and to offer a more “BINGE WATCH” experience, please see the pricing plans under “Series and Episodes below”.
Series and Episodes
With this service, you can offer a totally on-demand experience to your viewers by organizing videos into your own TV series. Videos appear as episodes allowing your viewers to play one episode after another or select any episode. This is more like an experience watching Netflix and Hulu. Your viewers will be able to BINGE WATCH your videos!
