Q8: How is TVOD different from SVOD?
Ans: Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD) is a service where users get unlimited access to all content on a platform for a fixed amount of money that is paid according to the time period of the subscription (e.g. getting a Netflix sub for a month). Transactional Video on Demand (TVOD) on the other hand, is when there is no subscription giving overall access to content-- users pay for individual media. This is the system we follow.
