Websites offering user accounts for private content?

by epoxy / September 16, 2015 2:51 PM PDT

I have a blogger where I use a 3rd-party site to sell video content. I want to have many videos stored on a site where a user can login and access after purchasing a membership.

So basically I would have a link on my site to the payment gateway, after the user purchases membership I will send them a link to the membership page where they can create an account which would give them access to all of my videos.

Do you know of any sites that offer this type of service?

Netflix for example. There are some pirate sites that do same but let's keep it legal.
