1 Headend Transport – Some streaming services require the use of proprietary transport services for the delivery of TV channels to the streaming service’s headend. For example, Sling TV currently requires the use of the Zixi transport service for the delivery of channels to the Echostar data center. Wurl contracts for these transport services and bills for them at cost + 10%. Upon receipt of a new Connector Order, Wurl will provide an estimate of related Headend Transport services.
2 CDN – In some cases, Wurl is required to provide CDN services for the delivery of programming directly to consumer devices. For example, TV Player and Roku delivery uses Wurl’s CDN. Wurl re-bills its customers (video producers) for CDN services at cost + 10%.
3 Video Producers who contract for both the Sling TV and Dish Connectors will only be charged a single Headend Transport charge.
4 For multiple HLS streams that are exactly the same:
- 1st stream: $1,000
- 2-5: +$250 each
- 5 plus: +$200 each
