Frequently Asked Questions

How do I put my stream on my website?
The embedded code for your stream is created via an online control panel which you will be given login details. You can copy the embedded code and paste it into the back-end of your website.

Can I see how much bandwidth I have used?
Our online analytic tool gives clear insight into bandwidth used, location of viewer IP address, daily hits and more.

Do my viewers need good internet download speed to view my stream?
Our streaming services come with adaptive bitrate (ABR) as standard and ensures that viewers can view the stream seamlessly on mobile, tablet, desktop & smart TV. First we send the smallest streaming profile to the viewer's device. If the device can handle an increase in quality for the internet download speed available, the CDN sends a higher streaming profile to the device, resulting in better viewing quality.

Are there addition setup charges for Viewsat's OTT streaming service?
The great thing about our OTT streaming services is that there are no setup charges and no need to purchase additional hardware if you have an existing satellite service with us.

What happens when my bandwidth has been used up?
When the your bandwidth has been used up, your audience will no longer be able to watch the stream. We send you notifications when 60%, 80% and 100% of the contracted bandwidth has been used. This enables you to always be in control and top up when necessary.

How can I top-up my bandwidth?
Customers must get in touch with their local Viewsat account manager or with us, here at Viewsat HQ, and we allocate your channel additional bandwidth.

How many minutes streaming do I get for 1TB?
This depends on the internet speed that your viewer is using. For example:
1TB gives you on average 140,000 streaming minutes @ 1,000kbps download speed.

How many viewers can watch at the same time?
Viewsat's OTT streaming service enables an unlimited amount of concurrent viewers. Customers expecting high volumes of traffic should upgrade to a higher bandwidth package.
