    Using an SVOD Plan

    In this topic, you will learn how to use a video SVOD plan that was created using the Commerce tab of Brightcove Beacon. For details on creating the SVOD plan see the Creating an SVOD Plan document.

    Overview

    An SVOD Plan defines how a particular set of videos can be purchased by your apps' customers. The SVOD plan must be created in Brightcove Beacon Classic, and is detailed in the Creating an SVOD Plan document.
