If your OTT account is enabled to create live events, you can promote your Live PPV Product directly to your audience by adding it to your site's Featured Carousel.
To do so:
- Create your live event. Be sure to specify the event's name and broadcast time.
- Create a transactional ("Buy or Rent") product. When you get to the Content tab, select your live event from the content modal.
- Create a Featured Carousel. Once you've done this, navigate to the Featured Category and be sure to add your event under the Content menu.
Now your live event will show up in your Featured Carousel and inform your customers of the upcoming event.
You can configure your live event in a number of different ways and our Featured Carousel will automatically promote all the different ways that your customers can access the content:
- If you made your live event available to your subscribers, they’ll see the option to watch it as part of their subscription.
- If you made your live event available exclusively inside of the Buy/Rent product and did not make it available to Subscribers, the Featured Carousel will promote purchasing the product.
- If you included your live event to both subscribers and within a Buy/Rent product, the Featured Carousel will promote both watch now or purchasing access.
