The transformation from a FAST Channel distribution to the OTT streaming platform

Understanding the customers’ demands, LunaTV starts with the FAST channel format that initially offers free ad-supported content through various streaming services. Later on, OTT streaming platform was designed following the development of the industry and a response to the evolving needs and preferences of viewers. 

By transitioning to an all-in-one OTT streaming platform, you as a content provider and distributor can now offer a more immersive and personalized streaming experience to audiences. Starting with content – Video-on-demand across multiple devices, and the personalized design that recommends interactive engagement.

The transition from FAST Channel distribution based on the LunaTV’s cloud port process to an OTT streaming platform heralds a new era of convenience, choice, and connection in the realm of digital entertainment.

  • AVOD: Monetizing video content through Advertising Video On Demand (AVOD) is a popular and easy way to monetize content. By choosing between SSAI and CSAI insertion types, you will be able to strategically place ads at the beginning, middle, or end of your videos as you prefer. 
  • SVOD: Monetizing video content through Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) is a prevalent method, where subscribers pay a fee to access exclusive content. With multi choices of crate Subscription plans, the Content owner can control their monthly revenue easier than ever. 
  • TVOD: The advantage of TVOD is the ability for content creators to charge per view, allowing viewers to pay solely for the content they choose to watch rather than subscribing to an entire catalog. This targeted payment approach enhances viewer satisfaction and provides greater flexibility for content consumption.

Reducing effort and investment in creating your content platform

LunaTV offers applications and on-demand request features. Instead of building a platform from scratch, content providers can leverage the OTT platform’s infrastructure to create their own branded applications tailored to their specific needs. With the ability to customize the user interface, branding, and content organization, content providers can deliver a unique and immersive viewing experience to their audience. Additionally, the on-demand request features allow viewers to access content at their convenience, enhancing user satisfaction and engagement.

A future of diversified content platforms without being dependent on the big company

Emerging technologies and changing consumer preferences have opened up new avenues for content creators and distributors to reach audiences directly. Independent platforms are now gaining traction, providing a diverse range of niche content and fostering a sense of community among creators and viewers. 

This shift allows for greater creativity, innovation, and discovery, as smaller platforms offer unique and specialized programming that may not fit the mainstream mold. By embracing this future of diversification, content platforms can empower creators, promote diversity, and cater to specific interests, ultimately enriching the overall streaming landscape.
