Uscreen vs Vimeo OTT: An honest comparison

The Vimeo OTT alternative that charges you less for way more

Uscreen is the Vimeo OTT alternative for anyone who wants to scale their VOD business with a robust platform that enables them to grow and doesn’t charge revenue-share.

Why Uscreen? Uscreen offers everything in one place

Vimeo OTT cares about taking your money. Uscreen cares about helping you make money.

And as a 25-person company, we here at Uscreen have all the time in the world (and none of the pressure) to be able to put your needs first and charge you fairly for it.

We built a VOD platform based on real content creator needs and treat our users like the valued client that they are, making Uscreen the leading platform on the market.

They do video, we do video monetization

Our love for VOD and video entrepreneurship shows in everything we do. With Uscreen, you can launch your video-streaming website and OTT apps, manage your audience and market your video service all in one platform for a flat monthly fee.

Vimeo OTT gives you…

Here’s how Uscreen is a better VOD platform

Uscreen pricing no revenue share

No revenue share. No hidden fees.

Vimeo OTT has a complicated revenue-share pricing model, which means the more money you generate, the more money you have to pay them. At Uscreen, we believe in fair pricing that is affordable, consistent and expected, not matter how much you make.

Never sign a commitment contract

Vimeo OTT makes it notoriously hard to migrate to any other VOD or OTT platform. By making users sign 2-4 year contracts and by limiting access to audience data, Vimeo OTT users are virtually locked-in. At Uscreen, we never make you sign any contracts, meaning you can leave us whenever you want (although we think you’ll want to stay).
