New regulations set by the Authority for Television On Demand (ATVOD) require that new members living in the UK must prove their age before they can purchase certain types of content. NATS has integrated a solution provided by Intelligent ID that will perform this age verification. When set up in NATS, any members located within the UK that signing up for your services are will be sent through an extended sign up process. This process will allow the new members to verify their address, sign up for your services, and meet the requirements of the ATVOD regulations.
ATVOD can be set globally in the Configuration Admin under "Surfers"
Configuring ATVOD within NATS is simple. After signing up for Intelligent ID, you will want to edit the Surfers Configuration section within NATS to include the new account information. At this time, you can also specify if the ATVOD feature is enabled for all sites, and how NATS will determine the referring country of new members signing up. Lastly, you may want to enable ATVOD settings found within the Throttling Configuration section. Depending on your settings, throttling may ensure that new members signing up do not excessively submit your ATVOD join form.
The ATVOD extended sign up process can be enabled for all your sites at once, or enabled for 1 or more individual sites at a time. You can also set up different ATVOD accounts for each site. This will allow for maximum flexibility when managing your ATVOD accounts. Lastly, ATVOD templates are included within each of your site/tours, ensuring the look and feel of the extended sign up process matches your branding.
