Pivotshare, a digital media startup, announced an update of its self-service online platform that allows anyone to sell their media directly to their audience. Filmmakers, comedians, speakers, and a host of other media producers may now offer their content on iOS and Android devices. The new platform also offers features such as the ability to buy videos as a download and the capacity for customers to tip or donate as a means of support.
Among the other features, the new mobile apps will allow anyone to watch Pivotshare content while on the go on either smartphones or tablets. The apps were designed separately to maximize the strengths and abilities of both device types. The apps are free and can be found in the iTunes and Google Play stores.
Content on the platform was previously offered on either a Pay-Per-View or subscription basis, but Pivotshare has now created the ability for clients to sell their media as a download.
