Pay-Per-View Setup - Tournament or Groups of Broadcasts

Through vCloud, playlist and Access Passes can be utilized to group broadcasts together and then generate a single price point a viewer would pay for access to all the broadcasts placed into the playlist. This is great for multiple event tournaments or specific groups of broadcasts you want to present to viewers.

If wanting to set up Pay-Per-View for an individual broadcast, please see Pay-Per-View Setup - Individual Broadcast

Setup-Create and Add Broadcasts to a Playlist

  1. In order to create a playlist, find the playlist area of vCloud by going to Produce then Playlists.

    Playlists are site-specific so only playlists for the site in the box at the top of vCloud will populate this area. For many, this will default to a particular school or organization. However, if you have multiple sites choose the correct one from the drop down.

  2. Choose Operations>Create Playlist.

  3. Fill out the information for the playlist. It is recommended to list a specific section as this will help when creating the Access Pass.

    Verify which sport will be included and give it a Title as well as a description if desired.

  4. Add broadcasts to the playlist by updating or upon broadcast creation, add the playlist under the playlist option by typing in its name and selecting it.
