On OKAST you can create platforms with different access models :
- Free content available without registration (such as YouTube) – to set up free content, it’s in this article: Offer free video contents on your platform
- Free content accessible after registration, i.e. the users can only access a content after creating an account (like Deezer)
- Content accessible after a paywall i.e. rental, subscription (such as Netflix) – to configure paid offers, it is in this article: Manage offers & monetization
