JW Live makes it easy to live stream. Now it’s even easier than before because JW Live is currently available to all Enterprise customers at no additional charge. We have simplified the pricing enabling publishers to experiment with live-streaming without headaches of complex, multi-tiered billing. You only pay for the bytes you stream and you’re billed at the same VOD rate. We believe that removing the cost of JW Live is the right move for our customers and is in line with JW Player’s friendly approach towards helping customers with their video needs; simple to understand and easy to use. Going live is much more accessible!
WHY OUR PRICING UPDATE IS GOOD FOR PUBLISHERS
When JW Live launched, we partnered with publishers to understand their live-streaming goals. Since then, we have grown to support many publishers who want to stream live content but turn away due to the considerably higher usage costs on top of setting up live infrastructure. By removing our cost of entry, we’re one step closer to helping all publishers realize their goals. With the wide range of capture hardware and software capable of live-streaming in the market, experimenting with live content has never been easier or more cost-effective than before with JW Live.
BENEFITS OF INTEGRATING LIVE STREAMING INTO YOUR CONTENT STRATEGY
One recent JW customer is finding success in growing their audience by live-streaming sporting events, enabling more unique viewers and creating revenue streams in new markets. Another producer is using JW Live to create additional experiences that are more intimate for their brand, building stronger engagements for their viewers. As a added benefit of delivering exciting real-time content to viewers, what we’ve found is that publishers who add Live experiences are also generating additional lift and discovery of existing video inventory. To summarize, JW Live is a conduit to new business ideas, driving audience engagement and increasing your brands visibility in a crowded video marketplace.
