How to Build a Netflix-like Subscription Streaming Video Site

YEREVAN, Armenia - May 5, 2022 - PRLog -- To start a streaming service like Netflix, follow these steps:

Find Your Niche: What types of movies or TV shows your new app will stream? Are you planning to cover all potential viewers? Or maybe you have decided to build a streaming service for only kids? Will you be able to create original content?

Yes, first of all, you should decide what content your app will stream to users.

Get Licensing for Content: You will need to get licenses for all types of content you are going to stream. You can obtain licenses by (1) contacting the copyright holder directly, or (2) renting movies and shows from authorized distributors.

Consider Revenue Models: You can basically choose between three monetization options:

Subscriptions: Subscribers are charged a monthly fee to receive access to a library of movies and TV shows.

Advertising: Once your streaming service becomes popular among users, you can charge other companies for running advertisements on your platform.

Pay-per-view: A subscriber will pay for each program viewed

Build a Minimum Viable Product: Once you find the right development company to turn your app idea into reality, you can start building a minimum viable product, aka the basic version of your subscription streaming video site. Below are the main features to consider for your streaming app:
  • Sign up / sign in

  • Payments and subscriptions
  • Show details page with episodes
