TVOD, or transactional video on demand, is a type of video on demand (VOD) service that allows users to pay for and stream individual movies or TV shows on a pay-per-view basis. TVOD services are typically operated by a movie or television studio, and users can access the content through a variety of platforms, such as a website, mobile app, or streaming device.
TVOD is different from subscription-based VOD (SVOD) services, such as Netflix or Hulu, which require users to pay a monthly fee in order to access a library of content. TVOD allows users to purchase or rent individual pieces of content, rather than paying for access to a larger collection. This can be a convenient option for users who only want to watch a few specific movies or TV shows, rather than committing to a full subscription.
TVOD is often used as a way for studios to release new movies or TV shows online, and users can typically purchase or rent the content. TVOD can also be a useful option for users who want to watch a specific movie or TV show that is not available through a subscription service.
