Video discovery app ShowYou is now offering content creators a way to more easily monetize their video streams within their apps.
Instead of a bunch of videos you like that people can view individually, everything you share is now part of a channel that ShowYou users can sit back and enjoy like a television network.
The company is also launching the ShowYou Channel Platform, which lets anyone monetize channels made up of their own content. ShowYou is offering its platform as a software-as-a-service, so you’ll pay a monthly fee as well as additional fees depending on viewer numbers.
That's different than the revenue-share model of YouTube and Vimeo, but here's the positive side: You the video producer get all of the ad revenues.
(App monetization will be a major topic at the upcoming Tablet Ecosystem conference in San Francisco on September 12).
