How It Works
Suite of Best-of-Breed
Applications (CTV, web, mobile)
Our best-of-breed applications offer rapid go-to-market CTV, web, and mobile solutions that allow you to control your revenue and audience. We provide native app support across market-leading endpoints including Roku, Amazon FireTV, AndroidTV, AppleTV, iOS, Android, Vizio, Smart TV Platforms (HTML5), and functionality that allows you to publish once and update your entire suite of apps at one time.
Our robust Live Chat & Watch Party features generate real-time viewer engagement that offer unique community building.
Live Chat with Emoji Support + Moderation Features
Bring viewer engagement to the next level. Users can interact with each other in real-time during live events across both web and mobile apps. We offer built-in profanity filters, emojis, user-to-user blocking, and staff moderation for enhanced support.
Private Watch Party Support – Live Events + VOD
Users can enjoy private watch parties with friends and family by simply sending share links and setting up private chat rooms. Our Watch Party feature also supports synchronized playback, allowing the host to control the content for the entire party. So, when the host pauses playback, everyone’s playback is paused, or when the host fast forwards or rewinds, everyone in the party does the same… so no one misses a beat!
Flexible Monetization Models
FUEL+Powr support a broad range of publisher monetization models across all platforms.
AVOD – Support Any Video or Stream with a Variety of Advertising Options
FUEL+Powr are compatible with all major video ad platforms and allow both pre-roll and mid-roll ads to be implemented across the entire streaming service. Ads can be targeted toward specific channels or individual pieces of content. IMA SDK is built into each native application for seamless rendering of VAST, VPAID, and VMAP tags.
In addition, Powr allows you to bring your own ad demand as well as plug-in third-party ad networks and other advertising partners. You can also leverage Bitcentral’s national partnerships which can generate ad fill and revenue in combination with your ad strategy.
SVOD, TVOD – Robust Subscription and Pay Per View Options
Our flexible OTT monetization models allows you to put either your entire streaming service or specific content behind a subscription pay-wall.
Choose from the following models
- Monthly and Annual: Provides the flexibility to offer content on a recurring basis that fits viewers’ needs and budget
- One-Time: Allows viewers to access content with a one-time non-recurring purchase
- Period: Offers access to content with a predetermined expiry date
- Rentals: Allows viewers to access a piece of content for a limited amount of time
Hybrid AVOD/SVOD models
Want to utilize both AVOD and SVOD? We can help with that too. Set up Ads on your free content and offer subscriptions to remove ads during playback.
PowrChat creates an additional revenue stream for streaming services by creating enhanced viewer engagement with content creators and hosts. Viewers may also purchase priority chat features, such as having their chats featured at the top of the chat box and displaying unique UI designs.
