DaCast Case Study: World Players of Handball (WPH)
Overview: Using DaCast, World Players of Handball (WPH Live) broadcasts Pay Per View live feeds and on demand videos worldwide. They generate revenue from an integrated paywall contained inside the video player. This allows WPH Live to generate sales directly from their own website.
WPH was established in 2004 to introduce handball to increase the sport’s following and be recognized nationally. WPH is using innovative marketing approaches like video streaming to gain exposure and attract a mass audience. They are now broadcasting multiple live handball matches all over the world.
- Reach a wider audience
- Create additional revenue sources
The Problem: World Players of Handball’s main objective is to promote the sport to a wider audience whilst allowing them to have another source of revenue. However, it was hard for WPH to find a streaming provider that offers the ability to monetize contents at an affordable price.
- Worldwide Content Delivery Network
- Built-in player Paywall
- Affordable platform access
- Global reach
- Increased revenues
- Growing audience
By utilizing DaCast’s platform, WPH monetized their broadcasts all around the world. This result spoke to both their goals: One being increased reach, the other additional revenue channels. WPH now serves live events to over 10 different countries, all made possible through their use of the DaCast SaaS (Streaming as a Service) model.
