What’s streaming video?
Video that you can watch over an internet connection, without having to download it. Any device with a screen that connects to the internet can be used: smart TV, smartphone, PC, laptop, tablet, etc. and you can choose any of them at any time. Some smart TVs will require you to cast the video from a mobile or other internet connected device. More detailed information on streaming and casting can be found here
What’s Vimeo? Vimeo is like a professional version of YouTube and has over 170 million users.
What’s the advantage over a DVD?
What if I still want to buy DVDs?
Why can’t I download video? Streaming is available instantly and on any suitable device. You don’t have to download software to make it work and it doesn’t take up storage space. There is no restriction on the number of times you can stream a video or where you stream it.
Why does a streaming video cost the same as a DVD? The main cost of a video programme is the time and expertise involved in the production process. That’s the same whether the output is on DVD or HD streaming.
For how long can I stream a video I’ve bought? Permanently. You will be transferred to Vimeo to complete your purchase and Vimeo will continue to allow you to stream videos you have bought, even if Avion Video was no longer in business.
Why do I pay Vimeo for HD streaming and not Avion Video? Because it is Vimeo that is providing the streaming service.
What if I want to buy a streaming video and give it to someone else? You cannot transfer a purchase from one person to another and gift certificates are not currently available, so the easiest option is to buy a DVD, if you want a gift for someone else.
