    Clickview Renewal Price Increase

    Just to warn everyone should they not already be aware that Clickview have increased their renewal costs from November 2012. We were unaware of this and have gone over our budget as it has meant a 27% price increase for us based on the number of students and package we have.

    Might be the last year for us using clickview.

    We found that Planet eStream offers many more features, is easier to use, and is better value for money.

    We are in the same position. They sent the renewal six weeks before it expired and the price was close to our Microsoft cost. So we told them that as we do not have a choice and cannot turnaround another solution in six weeks this will with out a doubt be the last year we use ClickView and to not bother sending a renewal for next year as we will be spending the next 12 months migrating to something else.

    They didn't seem too bothered.

    We had Clickview for 3 years. I was not happy with the price rise either. I was given a small discount for giving a 5 year commitment. I got a quote for Planet estream. It worked out £20 cheaper so I went for that. We have now had it just over a month and I have to say it is fantastic.

    No client, just a web browser. Works on all web browsers on all devices. You can upload content straight from an idevice or android device. It streams rather then downloads a chapter. No buffering just instant playback. If you get the freeview module like we did, you can record every freeview channel and not only 8 like you can with 24/7 or 16 with 24/7 cloud.

    Eventually ClickView came back with a very good price, but is was too late, planet estream was ordered.

    We have not looked back, planet estream in my opinion is the best value for money video on-demand product a school can buy. It does video on-demand so brilliantly but has so many other strings to it's bow.

    with clickview and planetstream, once recordings are made can you also access/download the original uncompressed broadcast stream recording?
