Only pay for the minutes played. All time is tracked and you receive an invoice on the 1st of each month with a breakdown of the previous month's usage. The tracked minutes are then multiplied by the per-minute price associated with the title.
Operators pay a flat monthly fee per station per title and enjoy unlimited usage for that time period. Monthly licenses can be beneficial to use for titles that typically have a high volume of minutes used each month.
Operators pay a flat yearly fee per station per title and enjoy unlimited usage for that time period. Yearly licenses can also be beneficial to have for titles that typically have a high volume of minutes used each month.
How do Monthly and Yearly licenses work?
For Monthly and Yearly licenses we use an industry standard “floating license”. This means that if you purchase three monthly licenses of a specific title, any three stations can run that title at one time. In the event that three stations are actively using that title and a fourth station launches it, the fourth station automatically rolls over to a “per minute” license and those minutes are tracked and billed according to whatever per-minute price has been set on that title.
Why do some titles not have monthly or yearly license options?
Content Creator's have the option to opt into one or all pricing options. We recommend they set prices for all three but do not require them offer multiple options. Some titles may choose to offer all three license options whereas others may only provide one.
Why choose monthly or yearly licenses?
Some operators may find it beneficial to use monthly or yearly licenses for titles over the PPM model. Using such license options allows you to have fixed monthly costs on licensing to help budget and keep expenses on track versus variable costs for the per minute price.
