How it works
Recast’s unique microtransaction model makes content accessible for everyone, and ensures content creators get paid for every view.
Content is priced from just 1p per minute using our in-platform credit system, ‘Cast Credits’. You can buy Casts or earn them in-platform by watching ads, sharing videos , or inviting your friends to join.
Every time you watch something, up to 85% of the content fee goes to the publisher of the channel you are watching – the rest is used by Recast to run and manage the platform.
Recast is totally free to join, easy to use, accessible from any device and affordable. You can watch the content you want, where you want and when you want. Safe in the knowledge that the vast majority of your payment will go directly to the individual, team, or sporting body that is providing the content.
For publishers, Recast is free to use and pays content creators in a much fairer way than existing subscription based platforms and packages. Recast is packed with features that give you complete control over your channel, content and earnings. Recast Publish, our Publishing Management System, gives publishers easy access to earnings and performance data, the ability to set their own price-per-view and restrict content availability by geographical location.
