FACTS about FAST Channels

Kapang’s YouFAST model allows anybody with episodic TV Series, Movies, Linear Broadcast TV, FAST Channels, Podcasts and Live Events to submit and broadcast their content on the platform, guaranteed listing, no lengthy selection process and no need to go through exclusive third-parties with demanding and costly revenue shares.

Kapang understands the paramount importance of content and believes that there is a market for every piece of professionally produced material, provided the platform has discovery technology. Kapang acknowledges that YouTube’s success is largely due to its extensive content library, which facilitates easy navigation. However, Kapang also recognizes that YouTube’s platform does not adequately display or reward the quality of production, all listings are judged on listing optimization and number of views which can be disadvantageous for creators of premium content.

Is your content being everywhere mean you are nowhere?

YouFAST from Kapang is the amazing approach for Monetizing Premium Video Content and Linear Broadcasters

Kapang, along with its proprietary technology division View TV, has observed that premium TV broadcasters and premium content studios are seeking a unified CTV platform for FAST and streaming services to avoid inefficiencies and increase earnings. Content businesses do not want to do independent deals with technology companies and advertising agencies, they just need a partner to turn their audiences into cash.

The Kapang CTV Platform will generate the necessary ad-funded revenue efficiency via an exclusive ecosystem reclaiming the revenues lost via the number of hops between the audiences, the contents and the advertisers.

BROADCASTERS THINK – Owned and Operated Apps are seen as the only option for reclaiming distribution costs for Broadcasters looking to adopt streaming

Top-tier US broadcasters have expressed that until now the only previously sustainable financial strategy is to build, manage and launch their own platform applications. This approach was seen as the only available option to maintaining revenue when transforming their businesses to streaming amidst the losses they have experienced through multi-platform distribution and multiple demand-side platforms.

Operating a self-contained media application not only incurs substantial costs that are unfamiliar to the business but also demands a skill set that is not present within their existing organizational structure. This venture carries the inherent risks of assembling a new and varied team, which can introduce complexities outside the company’s traditional expertise.

Why do you think that YouTubers have not built their own video websites, because they only make great content and cannot also sell ads to a global audiences and develop independent apps for all devices, it is an agreed partnership.

Kapang has announced that for content channel creators generating more than $1,000 in daily revenues and wanting exclusive branded apps, will be provided with segregated walled garden applications filtered from their content contained on Kapang and requiring no additional management fees or effort.

AUDIENCES THINK – TV & Film Audiences just want it all in one place

Television audiences today increasingly favor the convenience of accessing a variety of channels and content through a single application, rather than navigating multiple apps for each channel operator. This preference for a centralized platform stems from the desire for a streamlined viewing experience.

With everything in one place (as YouTube has), users can effortlessly discover new shows, binge-watch their favorite series, and enjoy live broadcasts without the hassle of switching between different apps. This unified approach not only simplifies the user experience but also reflects the modern viewer’s need for efficiency and ease in their entertainment choices treating Kapang as a true vMVPD.

ADVERTISERS THINK – Advertisers cannot keep up with the fragmentation of media and would prefer to trade using addressable methodologies.

Advertisers are increasingly wary of programmatic advertising due to its fragmented nature, which often leads to inefficiencies in reaching the desired audience and in turn lower ad-spends as they deduct the management costs.

The complexity of the programmatic ecosystem, with its myriad of intermediaries, can dilute the impact of ad spend and complicate the tracking of campaign performance. Moreover, the risk of ad fraud is significantly heightened in such a dispersed environment, where malicious actors can exploit vulnerabilities for financial gain.

These challenges lead to a more cautious approach in ad buying, as advertisers adjust their spending to compensate for the potential losses due to inaccuracies in ad delivery.

In contrast, advertisers are drawn to the idea of advertising on a single platform for Connected TV, akin to YouTube’s model, as it offers a more consolidated and secure space. This unified platform approach not only simplifies campaign management but also provides a safer environment for ad investments, reducing the chances of fraud and ensuring better addressable ad placement quality.

Advertisers have committed to spending more within a consolidated platform due to the lower campaign management overhead, centralized reporting and a higher confidence of campaign success by using traditional addressable content channel targeting.

KAPANG is the only hybrid solution to keep broadcasters, content studios, audiences and advertisers happy in a single unified space

Kapang stands out as an exemplary hybrid solution for the future of television, adeptly addressing the needs of audiences, advertisers, and content creators alike.

For viewers, Kapang offers the convenience of a single destination for diverse content, eliminating the need to hop between multiple apps and services.

Advertisers benefit from this consolidation, as it allows them to run cohesive campaigns without the complexities and risks associated with fragmented programmatic advertising.

Meanwhile, broadcasters and content creators enjoy increased revenue efficiencies, as Kapang’s streamlined ecosystem reduces the ‘hops’ or intermediaries involved in content monetization much the same as TikTok, Spotify and YouTube does for their respective content creators within their walled garden that does not require any creator integration with DSP Platforms and SSP networks.

This model mirrors the effectiveness of YouTube’s platform, which has long been praised for its ability to simplify the content delivery process while maximizing monetization opportunities.

In essence, Kapang’s approach harmonizes the ecosystem, fostering satisfaction and profitability across the board.

Why do content creators and premium television broadcasters not use YouTube?

Premium content owners often opt not to use YouTube as their primary monetization method for several reasons.

Firstly, YouTube’s revenue-sharing model means that a significant portion of advertising revenue goes to the platform itself, which can be less profitable for content owners. Creators see around a third of the gross revenues generated due to Google Ad-sales costs plus CDN & Storage technology fees which sees monetized content paying for the costs of low performing content.

Secondly, premium content creators seek more control over their content distribution and prefer platforms that offer better customization of user experience and branding opportunities.

Additionally, YouTube’s algorithm-driven visibility can make it challenging for premium content to stand out amidst a vast sea of diverse user-generated content compared to that of Netflix.

Finally, content owners are concerned about protecting their intellectual property rights and may find YouTube’s policies insufficient for preventing unauthorized use or distribution of their premium content.

Why are existing Connected TV Platforms and Smart TV operators not providing an effective solution?

Connected TV (CTV) platforms like Pluto TV and Samsung Plus have certainly made strides in diversifying the streaming landscape, offering viewers a range of content at no cost. However, these platforms present challenges for broadcasters and content creators. The selection process to be featured on these platforms can be highly selective, leaving many creators at a disadvantage if they don’t meet the specific criteria or standards set by the platform. This gatekeeping can stifle the diversity of content available to audiences.

Moreover, the revenue split on these platforms is often skewed in favor of the platform, which can significantly reduce the earnings of content creators. This model contrasts sharply with the more creator-friendly revenue models of platforms like YouTube, where creators have the potential to earn a larger share of the advertising revenue generated by their content.

The fragmentation across multiple CTV platforms also poses a problem. Content creators must navigate a complex web of distribution channels, each with its own set of rules and revenue models. This fragmentation can dilute brand presence and make it harder for creators to build a consistent audience base.

In light of these issues, there’s a growing need for a YouTube-style CTV platform that prioritizes content creators. Such a platform would offer a more equitable revenue share, greater control over content distribution, and a simplified process for reaching audiences. By reducing the barriers to entry and providing a more unified experience, a YouTube-like CTV platform could empower creators, foster innovation, and ultimately provide viewers with a richer and more diverse array of content.

We welcome Kapang.
