Here’s how you can pledge your support.
The On Site Pool Network Project creatively assists Network Contributors to promote live broadcasts completely free and open to the public. Instead of family members, friends, co-workers, and fans having to pay up-front for a live broadcast (PPV) they can catch it for free when it airs. When previously live streamed footage is recorded by Network Contributors, a video pass may be required for it to be watched again. Respectfully, On Site Pool Network also assists Pool Players depicted in live streams and recordings to earn residual income from purchased video passes. Even though purchasing a video pass is optional, it excitingly grants access to all previously live streamed footage recorded for on-demand in the highest quality. Network Contributors and Pool Players receive up to 80% of revenues from video passes purchased. A video pass is valid until it is renewed (some automatically and can be cancelled anytime).
What to expect watching as a guest (not registered or logged-in)
When viewing publicly licensed material, whether it be a live stream or an on-demand video, if you’re not logged-in or have not registered an account, video quality is reduced to 426x240p resolution. (Simulcasts abroad may have no sound or a customized audio loop track to ensure copyright compliance) Additionally, if a live stream is currently being aired, not being logged-in or registered will prevent you from responding to comments in live chat rooms. You will only be able to see comments by others in read-only mode.
I’m registered and I’m logged in. What’s next?
Thank you for creating an account with On Site Pool Network. Having an account and being logged in with that account is the first step in easily connecting to the network in the future, plus accessing basic features. You will immediately notice improvement in the video quality of publicly licensed live streams and on-demand videos up to 640x360p resolution. Sound from locations or commentary can be heard as well. Also, you will be able to communicate with others in live chat rooms publicly or privately. If you wish to pick an anonymous nickname to be displayed in the chat room, simply edit your account profile from the top menu bar.
Important: To view live streams or on-demand videos in the highest available resolution requires purchasing a video pass as explained below.
Which video pass should I purchase?
Thank you for your willingness to monetarily support Pool Players, Network Contributors, and On Site Pool Network. As of May 1st 2019, video passes are individualized by each network contributor. Pricing and length of video passes are determined by network contributors at their discretion. You are still able to purchase video passes for the entire network as well in the list of video passes available when clicking “Get Pass” when required to do so.
Where’s the button or link to purchase a video pass?
You may be confused where to purchase a video pass which is understandable. You can initiate a video pass purchase while you are logged-in from any live stream or on-demand video when you are presented with the “Get Pass” button. This ensures the network functions properly so data collected during any video pass purchase is a success for Network Contributors and Pool Players. They are excited to see video passes purchased to support their hard work and effort in the sport of billiards. Thank you.
