Frequently Asked Questions

What is streaming hours and how is it calculated?

Streaming hours is the amount of time your stream is running, from the moment you start streaming live or simulated live until you stop. Streaming hours also includes the processing of uploaded MP4 files based on the duration of the video.

What is viewer hours and how is it calculated?

Viewer hours is the total time that all of your viewers are watching your streams. For example, 10 viewer hours would be consumed if 10 viewers watched all of your one-hour event, or if 20 viewers watched all of your 30-minute event.

Is 4k streaming available?

Wowza Video does support 4k streaming. Content streamed at 4k is billed at two times the rate for streaming hours and four times the rate for viewing hours.

What if I exceed my included usage?

All plans have affordable, pay-as-you-go overage options, so you can keep streaming with ease. Usage beyond your plan limit will be billed according to your VOD and live streaming pricing plan.

Do I have to sign a long-term contract?

No. You can choose from the Wowza Video One Month of Streaming plan for 30 days of streaming, the flexible Pay As You Go plan, or if you plan to stream over a longer period, you can save with an annual plan. Contact us for information on Wowza Video annual plans.

Can I upgrade or downgrade my plan?

You can change your Wowza Video One Month of Streaming Plan at any time. Changes will take effect at the end of the current billing period. You may not change an annual plan mid-period; plan changes will only take effect at the end of the 12-month subscription period.
