The vast majority of stations in our app will be free to watch stations supported by ad revenue but a select few channels will only be viewable to subscribers who pay a premium monthly fee per month. This fee is per each package of premium stations; if a viewer is subscribed to two packages (such as Sports and Movies packages) they would pay about $20 per month to watch premium stations in both bundles.
Specifically, we plan to offer subscribers several tiers of premium channel packages ( example. Kids channel package, Sports channel package, Movie
channel package, etc.) which only have a max of 20-50 channels in each package, charging the subscriber anywhere from $5 to $19.99 for each
bundle depending on the type of content.
Premium stations in our app receive carriage fees just like with traditional cable TV. This means that whether people watch their content or not, the station owners receive a % of the total subscription money earned based on the number of subscribers to the premium service.
This allows for realistic, predictable revenue earnings.
And just like with cable TV the station owners keep 100% of their ad revenue and do not have to share it with the carrier (in this case, Zenither).
Unlike how YouTube Red works, the Zenither a la carte subscription model prevents dilution of the carriage fee pool and ensures each channel owner receives a fair share of fees.
Example: If 50 premium stations in our Basic Bundle service.
For every subscriber to the service, each station owner receives a carriage fee rate from us of $0.0999.
Station Owner Potential Earnings from Carriage Fees:
•1,000 subscriber = $99.90 / month.
•10,000 subscribers = $999 / month.
•100K subscribers = $9,990 / month.
•500K subscribers = $49,950 / month
•1M subscribers = $99,900 / month.
Annually, with a million subscribers a premium station owner could make up to $1,198,800 annually from carriage fees alone (plus whatever they receive from ad sales, merchandise sales and other revenue streams!)
