This is a beta offering.

By using this documentation, you are agreeing to abide by the terms of the JWP Beta Program Agreement.


You can require a user to create an account to view your content. When enabled, a popup window appears on the content landing page prompting the viewer login into an existing account account or create a new account to view your videos.

After signing in or signing up, your viewers have access to the following features:

  • Watching app content
  • Accessing previously started (Continue Watching) and Favorites content
  • Managing consent for various use cases

🚧

Depending on your app provider, unauthorized viewers may still be able to browse your library, but they will not be able to watch content.
