When Ustream decided to shut down their in-house pay-per-view services this summer, they were intensively looking for a replacement that could fit into their disruptive growth strategy. Not an easy task: currently this trusted platform powers more than 2 million live streams per month, and some of the biggest live ppv on the planet! We were really excited to hear that the Cleeng pay-per-view solution was chosen for all Ustream broadcasters.
Some of the Ustream clients have already been selling their amazing pay-per-view events with Cleeng in the past months: Canadian Open Fastpitch Womens International Championships 2014, LA Podcast Festival, Broadway Live: Unplugged concerts, or the Alexa Moffett's Dance Masterclass.
Here are the key benefits of the Cleeng pay-per-view for the Ustream broadcasters:
- Flexibility and scalability: Cleeng for Ustream is both for beginners and broadcasting experts such as: major sport organizations, entertainment companies and more.
- Ease of use: create and publish your event pre-booking page in 2 minutes or grab the embed code and sell directly from your website.
