Brightcove Watch Now or Watch Later

Brightcove Watch Now or Watch Later

Watch The Video

Not ready to watch? No problem! When you enable Watch Now or Watch Later a buyer or gift recipient can choose when they want their rental viewing period to begin. They can either start the rental period immediately (Watch Now), or they can delay the start until they are ready (Watch Later). If the rental viewing period has not begun, each time they access the video through login or magic link, they will be prompted to either Watch Now or Watch Later.

This feature is specific to our Brightcove integration and is compatible with all three video configurations: Stream2 Brightcove Portal with SSO/SAML, Stream2 Brightcove Gallery In-Page Experience, and Stream2 Brightcove Plugin.

Constituencies - Rolling or Fixed Date
Please keep in mind that this feature can be enabled when your constituencies dates are set to a Rolling action in your Stream2 Brightcove Form. Fixed Date access does not apply to Watch Now or Watch Later and the enablement of Watch Now or Watch Later will simply be ignored.


Watch Now or Watch Later with Gifting
If you have your form configured for a Rolling Constituency, Gifting is enabled, and you enable Watch Now or Watch Later functionality, gifted orders will not present the option for Watch Now or Watch later to the buyer, but will default to Watch Later mode. This is done so the gift recipient can choose the best time for their viewing period to start.
