Within VOD systems, we can identify several types depending on their characteristics. One of them is Subscription Video on Demand, which consists of offering multimedia content through a subscription model, where the user pays an annual or monthly fee to access the content.
This is the model used by large streaming platforms of series and movies such as Netflix, HBO or Amazon Prime, and allows the user to enjoy all the content without advertising.
In other cases, the platforms offer subscription services to access exclusive content and movie premieres, which can be enjoyed at home by paying these fees. In addition, some SVOD systems allow users to download content for viewing without an Internet connection, making it a perfect tool for use, for example, on a long flight.
This business model has been expanding in recent years, thanks to the wide range of content it offers, together with the accessibility of the fees that the major platforms usually present.
