DanceSport Total Plus 25/08/2014

2014 GrandSlam Standard Stuttgart The first five programmes are now available through the newly established video-on-demand service DanceSport Total Plus on Vimeo. A good time for a first appraisal of the acceptance the service is met with by a community that has long enjoyed all WDSF content free of charge.

The programmes on the recent GrandPrix and GrandSlam competitions in Stuttgart are being viewed - even behind the payment wall. Not yet by the numbers that we had hoped for - and, more importantly, that we based our initial calculations on - but we are optmistic that viewing will continue to grow. A few paradigms need to shift after four years of "all freebies."

Some adjustments have been made based on feedback that we received from viewers. We upped the rental period for the programmes from 48 to 72 hours. A video with instructions on how to sign up with Vimeo, on how to best enjoy the purchased programmes on a variety of different devices, etc. is in the works.
