Castr's All in One subscription plans include a monthly or yearly bandwidth allocation for streaming using our video player.

Your streaming bandwidth might exceed the total bandwidth on your account in some cases: Increased bitrate, increased viewership, or longer stream duration.

You can use Castr's Bandwidth Calculator to calculate how much streaming bandwidth you will need in order to select the best All in One plan for your needs

What happens if you go over your total bandwidth limit?

  • If you are on the All in One Entry plan, your streams will shut off when you run out of bandwidth.

  • If you are on the All in One Plus plan or above, overage protection will be enabled when you run out of bandwidth. It will be charged at $0.25 per GB for each that you go over and billed per 1TB.

Overage protection keeps your live streams up and running if you are out of bandwidth. This feature is available only in the All in One Plus plan and above.

It is enabled only when you go over the total bandwidth limit for your subscription plan and don't have any rollover bandwidth remaining. In this case, your overage protection will kick in and automatically charge the specific amount from your selected payment method, such as your credit card.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact Castr Support. We are happy to help!
