Frequently Asked Questions

What are live streaming hours, and how are they calculated?

Live streaming hours are the amount of time your stream is live, from the moment you start your event until you stop it.

What are viewer hours and how are they calculated?

Viewer hours is an approximation of the total time all of your viewers are watching your streams. E.g., 10 viewer hours would be consumed if 10 viewers watched all of your 1 hour event, or if 20 viewers watched all of your 30 minute event. Our approximations of viewer hours are based on views at 720p at a typical bitrate. Your actual consumption may be higher or lower based upon your encoder settings, the streamed content, and the video resolutions consumed.

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 pricing plan.

Do I have to sign a long-term contract?

Yes, you should choose one year Wowza Streaming Cloud Service and can save with an annual plan.

Can I upgrade or downgrade plans?

With Wowza Streaming Cloud year-to-year plans, 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.
