Abstract
(EN)
Described are various embodiments of a system and method in which advertising content may be delivered embedded within streaming programming contents over Internet, to be selectively viewed concurrently therewith by subscribers in exchange for compensation. For example, compensation may be provided in the form of a subscription fee reduction, wherein incrementally accumulated ad viewing credits can be applied against a subscriber's next invoice or statement.
