Introducing Exclusion Zones – limit your videos’ access based on a geographic location.

Tags: , API, Geoblocking

There are cases when selling a video on-line is going to hurt ticket sales for the actual event.  It’s a common practice for sporting events to limit the TV and digital showing of live games to protect ticket sales, or sometimes you only want people within a set distance of a location to have access to a video.

With the new Exclusions we’ve added the the API, you can now define a location via Longitude and Latitude, a distance in miles, and if to exclude the people inside that radius or outside of it.  Once created, people being affected by this exclusion won’t be able to view the video in the same way as any other Geoblocking rule you would create.

You can see the API documentation for implementing Exclusions on the Wiki, with some examples.
