When we started working with ECAC Hockey in 2015, they were looking for a way to monetize their tournaments outside of traditional ticket sales.
With the help of BoxCast's complete live video streaming platform, ECAC Hockey created a new revenue source that is helping their organization thrive. They monetized their video content and brought some of the best collegiate hockey action in the country to thousands of people who can't be in the stands.
Here's how it works....
Step 1: SET A TICKET PRICE FOR YOUR STREAM
The BoxCast platform makes it easy to set a ticket price for your games. When scheduling your games in advance, simply change the visibility to "Ticketed", and enter in whatever ticket price you'd like.
Step 2: PLUG YOUR BOXCASTER INto aNY camera
Our BoxCaster is a plug-and-play streaming device that takes video from any source ( i.e. camera, switcher, Tricaster) and allows you to stream live in 1080p HD.
Step 3: embed the stream on your website
We give you an embeddable player that you simply copy and paste into your website. You also have the option to add a pre-roll video and game countdown timer.
Step 4: market your event
Step 5: SIT BACK, RELAX, and watch the $$$ roll in
Once your stream is scheduled, your BoxCaster is plugged in, and you've promoted your event, viewers will begin purchasing tickets. From your BoxCast dashboard, you can see how much you've earned and how many tickets you've sold. It's as simple as that!
