Over-the-top

One of the largest challenges for subscription based content providers is the price per GB: subscribers pay a fixed price per month for unlimited viewing, so you can’t build a business case on regular CDNs pay-per-GB model.

StreamZilla introduces Over-the-Top (OTT): a subscribers based business model. The three sliders to your right let you calculate your delivery business case immediately:

  1. Select your number of subscribers
  2. On average, 10% of subscribers watch concurrently
  3. On average, subscribers consume between 1 and 2Mbps. (256Kbps for radio)

Play with the sliders and the calculator will calculate your StreamZilla CDN costs per subscriber immediately.

Let’s cut the cords on cable, shall we?

Pricing

The OTT pricing model is based upon 95% usage of the CDN.

The calculator helps you calculate users, overbooking ratio and average stream quality, times the price for 95% bandwidth (tiered), divided by the number of subscribers.

The 95% model is a perfect fit for subscription based services since you are not charged for unpredictable throughput but for much better predictable OTT peak and mean capacity.

Our CDN experts are available to help you with your business case calculations. Feel free to contact us.
