Let's say 500k viewers have watched my stream

Regarding the streaming service you offer, you say X minutes is for X dollars per month. You just charge based on how long the streams is on regardless of how many viewers have watched it?

Let’s say I’m on the $5 a month plan (which currently I’am) and I consumed 8000 minutes out of the 10,000 and during those minutes 500,000 viewers watched the stream, you still would charge $5 a month?

Hi @caspooor11,

With Cloudflare Stream you basically pay for two things:

  • $5 per 1,000 minutes “uploaded”. You only pay for the time uploaded - no matter how many versions it is transcoded into.
  • $1 per 1,000 minutes “watched”. If 100 people each watch 10 minutes, that’s 1,000 minutes total and will cost $1. Or if 5,000 people each watch 2 minutes, that’s 10,000 minutes total and will cost $10.

So no, if 500,000 viewers all watched 8,000 minutes each, that would be 4,000,000,000 minutes total and would cost $4,000,000 with this pricing - which is a tiny bit more than $5 :grin: However, you can get discounted if you plan on streaming more than 1,000,000 minutes per month - reach out to the Enterprise Team for more information.
