BoxCast allows you to ticket broadcasts as long as it is on your plan. With ticketing, you can easily ticket a single broadcast or ticket a channel with multiple broadcasts. In this article, we will be covering how to ticket a channel and create a season pass for sports.
*Remember, this doesn't have to be used for sports and can be used for anything you broadcast. You could create a channel for different bands at your venue, different yoga instructors etc.
Not sure if you have ticketing? Click "Upgrade Options" in the bottom corner of the screen and if you do not see a green checkmark next to ticketing, click schedule time to talk to your client manager.
In this example below, we currently have a client who is using our channels + ticketing feature to sell a single game ticket, a season pass for each sport and an all-access pass for all the sports.
*To learn how to ticket an individual broadcast, click here. It's important to remember that you can ticket individual broadcasts as well as ticket a channel. The channel ticket will override the single broadcast ticket.
Creating an All-Access Ticket
The "All-Access" ticket gives a viewer the ability to buy all their sporting broadcasts for 1 price. Our client has set this up as a 1 time, $100 ticket. Follow the steps below to set up an All-Access pass to your events.
Create a channel and set it up as a ticketing channel. The price for the channel can be whatever you think the value of those broadcasts are.
Schedule the broadcasts you want to put in the All-Access pass. Feel free to try out our Bulk Scheduling Tool, to assist you with this. Make sure you add the channel or channels you want the broadcast to fall under. By doing this, you will ensure that someone who bought a ticket to that channel, will see the broadcast.
If you don't know exactly when the next broadcast will be, no worries, schedule for what you know and you can always add it later on.
If you plan to sell individual tickets to the event as well, feel free to schedule the broadcast with a separate ticket amount at this time. Single broadcast tickets cannot be purchased through the All-Access pass link. You must send a link to that individual broadcast to do so. Learn more here.

Now that your All-Access Pass is created and your broadcasts are scheduled, its time to either send out a link for viewers to buy or embed the channel on your website so viewers can buy directly from there.
To embed on your website, click the Embed button. To get a boxcast.tv link for the channel, click on View on BoxCast.tv.
To see if viewers are buying your channel, click on Ticket Report to get more information.
Creating ticketed channels can be customized to however your organization wants to sell tickets. We have seen customers create monthly passes, tournament passes, weekend passes, etc.
You will want to do this for each year or season since the channel ticket has no expiration. Once someone buys a ticket to the channel, they have access to it until it's deleted. Generally, customers will make a new channel for the following year.
If you have any questions about how you can customize your ticketed channels, reach out to our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org and they would be happy to help!
