Tvoop is making a slight change to the way they do business. They are now allowing users to share and upload content for free, with 2GB of storage and 10GB of bandwidth per month. This allows people who are really prolific at streaming and sharing top quality content to actually make some money, and not have to give away their content for free.
For users who are very busy, they offer upgrades to more bandwidth and storage space, but of course this costs money. Chances are, if a user actually needs to upgrade, they are probably generating a lot of traffic already and therefore already making money, so having to pay a bit shouldn’t hurt them much.
Tvoop is like YouTube or UStream, but the major difference is that they follow a pay per view model, so to watch something on the site you have to pay. It is an interesting system because, obviously, the content put out has to be top-notch if you expect people to pay for it. It does give people who put out great stuff on the Internet a way to profit without having to rely on annoying YouTube and Justin.tv ads that detract from the viewing experience.
Would you pay for higher quality content or do you prefer to keep your online videos on places like YouTube? Let us know in the comments!
