Video On Demand vs. Pay Per View



Resolution Steps

Video On Demand (VOD)

    • Video On Demand is available to watch, fast forward, rewind, etc. at any time within the viewing window

    • VOD can be viewed for 24 or 48 hours, depending on the offering 

    • Some adult VODs offer a 6-hour viewing window 

    • With no broadcast schedule, VOD is available when you want it, making it Video On Demand 

Pay-Per-View (PPV)

    • Pay-Per-View is available to watch during a specific day and time; you pay for an event or show
    • For example, purchasing a WWE event on Sunday at 8:00pm, entitles you to watch only during that timeframe

    • Once the broadcast is over, it cannot be retrieved or watched again

    • Sometimes events are repeated; to watch the repeat, purchase the event again
