Recast Terms & Conditions
Welcome to Recast’s Terms & Conditions (our “T&Cs”).
When we define words and phrases in these T&Cs, they will have that meaning wherever else they are used in these T&Cs when they start with capital letters. A helpful list of the terminology we use can be found in our Glossary.
The Recast service offers on demand videos, audio content and live streams (“Videos”) available to watch and listen to online, including via the Recast application available at https://the.recast.app and https://watch.recast.tv (the “Fan Site”).
Videos are uploaded to the Fan Site by individuals or entities who are invited and authorised by us to do so (“Publishers”). Publishers are granted access to a separate website (“Recast Publish”) from which they can upload and manage their Videos to their Recast channels (“Channels”). A Publisher may have more than one Channel, but each shall include a collection of Videos that the Publisher has shared or published, which is curated into a designated channel on the Publisher’s page.
The Fan Site has its own reward credits, known as “Cast Credits”. Cast Credits can be earned or purchased (see further sections 2.5 and 2.6 below) and are redeemed in return for watching Videos on the Fan Site.
How to access the Fan Site
The Fan Site, as available at https://the.recast.app and https://watch.recast.tv, is a progressive web app. It is accessed online via an internet browser. You don’t need to download the Fan Site or install it onto your device but you can download a shortcut to the Fan Site onto your device for easy access.
We may also enable some Publishers to embed a version of the Fan Site onto their websites, apps or other digital platforms (a “Publisher Environment”) so that their Videos or Channel(s) can be viewed from there. (More detail about accessing Videos via a Publisher Environment is set out below).
We may also make the Fan Site (or bespoke versions of it) available or accessible via other third party websites, applications and digital TV platforms (“Third Party Platforms”).
The Fan Site (including versions of it available via a Publisher Environment or other Third Party Platform), Recast Publish and any other Recast websites, software applications and technologies owned by us are together referred to as the “Platform”.
Who we are
The Platform is made available by Content Technology Partners (CTP) Limited, a company registered in England and Wales with company number 14764377 whose registered address is at 1 Charterhouse Mews, London, England, EC1M 6BB (“us”, “we” or “our”).
How we refer to you, and which terms apply to you
We refer to everyone who accesses or uses the Fan Site (whether directly or via a Publisher Environment or a Third Party Platform) a “User”.
If you create a Fan Account to access the Fan Site, we refer to you as a “Fan”. All Users can view previews of Videos and see other areas of the Fan Site without a Fan Account. To be able to view Videos in full, and to earn, purchase and redeem Cast Credits, you will however need to create a Fan Account and become a Fan.
If you create a Fan Account and become a Fan then all of these T&Cs, including the General Terms and Fan Terms (see below), apply to your use of the Fan Site.
If you do not create a Fan Account, the Fan Terms will not apply to you but all other sections of these T&Cs will apply to you.
Please note that if you are one of our authorised Publishers, or you work for or with a Publisher, you will need to register a Fan Account and agree to these T&Cs before being given access to Recast Publish.
In these T&Cs when we refer to “you” and “your”, we are referring to you as a User of the Platform.
Other Key terminology
We use the term “Content” in its widest sense to describe all videos, audio content, live stream video and audio content, images, graphics, pictures, text, messages, emojis, reactions, sounds, information, applications, code, data, materials or any other content in whatever format and whether known now or invented in the future.
“Fan Details” refers to the information a Fan submits to the Fan Site or third party platform when signing-up for a Fan Account (including their Platform ID), when updating their Fan Account details, or when responding to optional requests from us to provide further personal information.
“Fan Content” refers to any Content submitted by a Fan which is published on the Fan Site by the Fan using any of the services we make available to them via the Fan Site (including the Live Chat functionality). Fan Content includes any aspects of a Fan’s Platform ID which will be displayed on the Fan Site and seen by other Users.
“Publisher Account” refers to an account set up by a Publisher to give them access to the Recast Publish site.
“Publisher Content” refers to any Content which a Publisher decides to upload, stream, publish or otherwise make available on the Fan Site for other Users to view. Publisher Content includes the Videos (which may include video and/or audio files) which are published or live streamed by (or on behalf of) a Publisher on a Publisher’s Channel, the title of a Video, any description and cover image associated with a Video, Live Chat messages of Publishers and a Publisher’s Channel name(s) and cover images.
A “Channel Pass” refers to a pass that will allow the Fan to watch all of the Videos on a specific Channel of that Publisher for a specified period.
Only we or Publishers can publish Publisher Content to the Fan Site.
Each time a User watches a Video (or for audio content, listens) beyond the preview, this constitutes a “View”.
“Price” refers to the number of Cast Credits a Fan needs to redeem to View any Video or obtain a Channel Pass (as applicable).
“Wallet” refers to a virtual Recast wallet. For Fans, this is shown in their Fan Account and indicates the Cast Credits currently available to them.
Accessing Videos via a Publisher Environment or a Third Party Platforms
Where you access the Fan Site via a Publisher Environment or a Third Party Platforms, additional terms may apply in addition to these T&Cs and some of the features of the Fan Site may differ. You may also need to take additional steps to gain full access.
For example, when you first want to View a Video via a Publisher Environment, you will be asked to sign in to your Fan Account (or register if you don’t have one).
To View a Video via the embedded version of the Fan Site on a Publisher Environment you will need to redeem Cast Credits (or use a Channel Pass) in the normal way. Your Wallet will automatically update as you redeem Cast Credits across different Publisher Environments, and on https://the.recast.app or https://watch.recast.tv, so you always know how many Cast Credits you have available.
Your acceptance of these T&Cs
By accessing and using the Fan Site you accept these T&Cs and agree to be legally bound by them. If you do not agree to these T&Cs, you must discontinue use of the Fan Site (whether you are accessing it directly via https://the.recast.app or https://watch.recast.tv, or via a Publisher Environment or Third Party Platform). If you’ve downloaded a shortcut to the Fan Site on your device we recommend that you delete this.
If you are accessing and using the Fan Site on behalf of a company or similar legal entity, you confirm that you have the authority to bind that legal entity to these T&Cs and “you” shall refer to both you as an individual and the legal entity on whose behalf you are accessing and using the Fan Site.
Right to update T&Cs
From time to time we may change, update or revise these T&Cs and the policies they refer to.
Any revised terms or policies will be made available to you at https://recast.tv/about/website-terms and a notification of any material changes will be emailed to you. Please take a moment to read the changes. If you continue to use the Fan Site after we make the changes, you will be deemed to agree to the changes. If you do not agree to the changes, you should not use the Fan Site.
Where we make changes to these T&Cs in an adverse way to you (unless such change is to comply with applicable law or regulation), we will notify you in advance and give you the opportunity to terminate your Fan Account if you are unhappy with those changes, in accordance with our Refund Policy.
This version of our T&Cs is effective from 3rd July 2023]. Previous versions of our T&Cs can be found at https://recast.tv/archive/y-2023/m-06/d-30/terms-and-conditions
A. Fan Terms
- Your Account
- Registering a Fan Account
To become a Fan and begin earning, purchasing and redeeming Cast Credits to watch Videos beyond their preview you need to register an account as a Fan (a “Fan Account”). Each Fan may only have one Fan Account.
When creating a Fan Account you need to provide certain personal information about yourself and you must ensure this information is true and accurate. You must keep this information up to date.
When you sign up we will assign you a username. You can create your Platform ‘identity’ (your “Platform ID”) in the Settings area: this may include a ‘handle’, account name, Chat Display Name, and a profile image. Your Platform ID can be chosen by you but must not be misleading. As a Fan, depending on the functionality you use within the Platform, some or all of your Platform ID may be seen by other Users.
When registering you will be prompted to select a password. You must keep your password secure. We recommend that you change your password from time to time to assist with security.
If you believe someone has accessed the Platform using your details and password without your authorisation, it is your responsibility to set up a new password.
If you share your device with other people, be aware that unless you log out of Recast whenever you leave a browser session you will remain logged into your Fan Account and as such they may be able to redeem your Cast Credits to watch Videos without having to enter your password. We will not refund Cast Credits redeemed in this way by people you share your devices with. If this is of concern to you, you should not access your Fan Account on devices you share.
You can amend your personal details, your Platform ID (other than usernames), and your password at any time by accessing your Fan Account via the Settings area.
Your Platform ID (and any element of it, for example your account name or profile image) must not: (i) be obscene or offensive, (ii) infringe any third party rights, (iii) mislead anyone as to your identity, or (iv) otherwise (in our absolute discretion) be considered inappropriate. We may ask you to change any element of your Platform ID at any time, or change it directly ourselves (in which case we will send a message to your registered email address explaining this).
- Deleting your Fan Account or Content
You can ask us to delete your Fan Account at any time by selecting “Delete My Account” in the Settings area.
We will delete your Fan Account within 30 days of receiving your request but we may retain relevant metadata (such as credit ledger history) on our systems for accounting and audit reasons for as long as is necessary to fulfil our legal and/or contractual obligations and/or for other legal purposes.
We may suspend and/or permanently deactivate or delete your Fan Account if we have reason to believe that you are in breach of these T&Cs.
Once we have deleted your Fan Account and Fan Content, it cannot be recovered. We recommend that you keep a copy of all of your Fan Content.
You will no longer be able to earn Cast Credits and you will lose all Cast Credits that are credited to your Fan Account when your Fan Account is deleted or deactivated (subject to any refund you are entitled to in accordance with our Refund Policy).
2 . Cast Credits
- About Cast Credits
Cast Credits are reward credits issued by us, which can only be used within the Platform. Cast Credits can either be purchased from us or can be earned within the Platform.
Cast Credits are only available from us, and we are the only entity that accepts Cast Credits. All Cast Credits transactions are made through us, meaning:
- when you redeem Cast Credits, you transfer your Cast Credits to us; and
- when you earn Cast Credits, we transfer Cast Credits to you.
This is the case whether you are accessing the Fan Site directly or via a Publisher Environment or a Third Party Platform: you are always dealing with us.
Cast Credits cannot be sold, transferred, traded or otherwise redeemed for monetary value. When you redeem Cast Credits, you are not entering into contract with the applicable Publisher.
- Redeeming Cast Credits to View Videos
You can redeem Cast Credits to View Videos on the Platform at the applicable Price. The Price for each Video you wish to View is stated on the preview of each Video.
If you want to watch more than the preview of a Video, click “keep watching” or “watch” and we will automatically deduct the number of Cast Credits equal to the Price from your Wallet.
- Redeeming Cast Credits for Channel Passes
You can also redeem Cast Credits for Channel Passes on the Platform at the applicable Price. The Price for each Channel Pass is stated on the relevant page where Channel Passes are listed or offered.
Each Channel Pass will last for a limited period of time – you can obtain Channel Passes for either 1, 3, 7 or 28 days (“Channel Pass Period”) after which the Channel Pass will expire. The Price of Channel Passes will usually differ depending on the relevant Channel Pass Period.
If you want to redeem your Cast Credits for a Channel Pass, we will automatically deduct the number of Cast Credits equal to the Price from your Wallet.
Cast Credits redeemed for a Channel Pass are non-cancellable and non-refundable unless you have a statutory right to a refund.
Once you have obtained a Channel Pass, during the Channel Pass Period, you will be able to watch all Videos made available by the Publisher on the relevant Channel in your location (including any new Videos uploaded or live streamed by the Publisher during the Channel Pass Period) an unlimited amount of times, without having to redeem Cast Credits for each individual “View”.
However, you agree and acknowledge that obtaining a Channel Pass does not guarantee further Videos will be uploaded or live streamed by the Publisher during the Channel Pass Period.
Once you have Viewed a Video, it will normally be accessible to View again (a “Replay”) in your “Library” for at least 7 days without you needing to redeem any more Cast Credits, unless:
- the Video was a live stream;
- the Video has been deleted or unpublished from the Platform for any reason;
- the Video has not been made available for subsequent viewing, has been made available for Replays for less than 7 days from the date of the first View, or the Video has been made available for a limited number of Replays (in which case this will be explained at the point the Cast Credits are redeemed for the first View of the Video);
- the Video was a “Watch & Earn Video”; or
- access to the Video was acquired by way of obtaining a Channel Pass which has subsequently expired.
- Your Recast Wallet
You can check the number of Cast Credits you have available to redeem at any time via your Recast virtual Wallet in the Platform.
If you do not have sufficient Cast Credits in your Wallet to cover the Price of a Video or a Channel Pass, you will not be able to View the relevant Video or obtain the relevant Channel Pass and you will need to earn or purchase more Cast Credits (see our Reward Policy).
- Earning Cast Credits
You can earn Cast Credits in accordance with our Reward Policy.
- Purchasing Cast Credits
Cast Credits can only be purchased from us, and can only be used by redeeming them through us in accordance with these T&Cs.
When you purchase Cast Credits from us, you will pay us in pound sterling (or such other currencies as we may accept from time to time) using the payment methods we accept (see further here). Upon receipt of your payment, we will automatically convert this to Cast Credits at the rate we specify when you purchase them.
Cast Credits cannot be redeemed for cash. However, if you have purchased Cast Credits from us, our Refund Policy applies.
3. Your responsibility for your Fan Details and Fan Content
You are solely responsible for all Fan Details and Fan Content you submit to the Platform.
You confirm that:
- all of your Fan Content complies with our Acceptable Use Policy;
- all of your Fan Content has either been created by, and is owned by, you, or, you otherwise have all the necessary rights, consents and permissions to submit it to the Platform;

- if your Fan Content features the personal data of any individual other than you (including their name or other personal information) you have obtained the relevant individuals’ consent (or have other lawful grounds) to feature their personal data as used in your Fan Content;

- your Fan Content complies with, and will not cause us or any other User to be in breach of any applicable law.
We may (but are not obliged to) monitor and moderate your Fan Content and the Content of other Users published on the Platform.
If we have reasonable grounds to believe that any of your Fan Content infringes the rights of any third party and/or is otherwise in breach of these T&Cs (including our Acceptable Use Policy), we may delete such Fan Content without prior notice to you. We may also, acting reasonably, disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that your Fan Content infringes their intellectual property rights, right to privacy or other rights.
4. Permission to use your Fan Content
- Our right to use your Fan Content
You grant us the right to use your Fan Content on the Platform and in connection with the promotion of the Platform, our Publishers and their Publisher Content. More specifically, you grant us a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free licence (which is unlimited in time) to:
- use, host and store all of your Fan Content to operate and provide the necessary functionality of the Platform;
- publicly display, broadcast, transmit, and make available your Fan Content to other Users via the Platform (in each case in the form you submit it to the Platform, save that we may translate your Fan Content, and make such other modifications as we may deem necessary to ensure it complies with these T&Cs);
- copy and use your Fan Content to promote us, the Platform, Publishers, Channels and Publisher Content, in any media (including via social media channels, in advertising and in promotional materials); and
- to use your Fan Content for any other purposes as may be required by law.
- How long we can use your Content for
The rights you grant us above are not limited by time and will continue (in accordance with section 1.2) after you delete your Fan Account or any Fan Content, and after you unpublish or delete any Fan Content.
5. Live Chat
As a Fan, you may be able to use and interact with the Publisher and other Fans via the ‘live chat’ functionality during certain live streamed Videos made available by a Publisher (“Live Chat”).
You will be asked whether you wish to publicly display your Fan Account username to other Fans when using Live Chat, or otherwise to enter an alternative display name for the Live Chat (“Chat Display Name”).
In respect of the Fan Content you make available in the Live Chat feed, we draw your attention specifically to section 3 of these Fan Terms above (Your responsibility for your Fan Details and Fan Content) and section 2 of the General Terms (Prohibited Activities).
In respect of Fan Content made available by other Users to you in the Live Chat feed, we draw your attention to section 4 of the General Terms (Content & Raising Concerns).
Messages inserted into the Live Chat feed may be subject to a character limit.

We shall use our reasonable endeavours to review your request and take, in our sole discretion, appropriate action with respect to such Content.
Content & Raising Concerns
The Platform enables Publishers to display, transmit and upload Publisher Content, including Videos. Fans can also submit Fan Content which may be displayed on the Platform, including via the Live Chat functionality made available during certain live streamed Videos.
We do not routinely review, monitor or moderate Videos or other Publisher Content and, although a Publisher has discretion to moderate the Live Chat feed on its own live streams, we do not routinely review, monitor or moderate Fan Content. As such we cannot guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of Publisher Content or Fan Content. By using the Platform, you agree to assume this risk and acknowledge that all Publisher Content and Fan Content is made available on the basis that we are not required to exercise any control or judgement over Publisher Content or Fan Content.
The views expressed in any Publisher Content or Fan Content are the views of the individual authors and not ours, unless specified otherwise by us. We disclaim all liability in respect of any comments, views or remarks expressed in any Publisher Content or Fan Content.
It is a known risk of internet usage that people are not necessarily who they say they are. People may provide information or behave in a way that is unreliable, misleading, unlawful or illegal. We have no way of telling if statements made by other Users are true. You should therefore exercise some degree of caution when using any website or app. By using the Platform you accept that you use the Platform at your own risk.
If you have concerns of this nature in relation to any Publisher Content or Fan Content on the Platform, please use the “Report” function available via the ellipsis (…) icon available on each Video or in each Live Chat. We shall use our reasonable endeavours to review your concerns and take, in our sole discretion, appropriate action with respect to such Publisher Content.
Availability of Platform
We provide the Platform on an “as is” and “as available” basis. We give no warranty that the Platform will be free of defects and/or faults, that defects will be corrected or that the Platform or the server that makes it available are free of viruses or anything else which may be harmful or destructive.
Whilst we will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Platform is secure and free of errors, viruses and other malware, we give no warranty or guarantee in that regard and you are responsible for your own security, that of your personal details and your computer, tablet, smartphone, laptop or other device that you use for accessing the Platform. We accept no liability for any disruption or non-availability of the Platform, including where you are accessing the Platform via a Publisher Environment or Third Party Platform and the disruption or non-availability is caused as a result of an issue with the Publisher Environment or Third Party Platform. We are under no obligation to update information on the Platform.
We reserve the right to alter, suspend or discontinue any part (or the whole of) the Platform. These T&Cs shall continue to apply to any modified version of the Platform (or any part of it) unless it is expressly stated otherwise.
We provide all Content available on the Platform in such format types as we determine.
Your computer, tablet, smartphone, laptop or other device that you use for accessing the Platform must be of sufficient technical specification to be able to view Content in such formats and sizes as we provide.
We do not accept any liability for your inability to receive, access or otherwise view Content on the Platform resulting from the incompatibility of your computer, tablet, smartphone, laptop or other device and/or their associated systems with the required technical specifications.
You are responsible for all charges that your mobile network and/or internet service provider may apply in respect of your use of data in connection with your use of the Platform. If you are not the bill payer for the device being used to access the Platform, you must obtain, and will be assumed to have received, permission from the bill payer for using the Platform.
Obligation to update to latest version
We may update some or all of the Platform and/or any of the functionality and/or Content made available through it at any time and for any reason, for example to improve performance, enhance the user experience, reflect changes to operating systems or address security issues. Alternatively, we may ask you to update parts of the Platform for these reasons.
If you choose not to install such updates or if you opt-out of automatic updates (where applicable) you may not be able to continue using the Platform or functionality may be impaired.
7. Termination and suspension of Fan Accounts
- Termination by us
We may, at our sole discretion, without notice and without liability to you, immediately terminate or suspend your Fan Account, or block your use of the Platform, in the event that we reasonably consider that:
- you have violated these T&Cs;
- you have violated any of our policies (including our Acceptable Use Policy);
- you work for or with a Publisher and use your Fan Account in connection with that Publisher’s activity on the Platform, and that Publisher is in breach of their agreement with us; or
- you are using your Fan Account for fraudulent or dishonest means (for example, by way of registering for a Fan Account and redeeming your free Cast Credits exclusively on the Publisher Content of a Publisher who is your friend, family member or another associated person to inflate the amount they can earn on the Platform).
Where you have carried out any of the activities in (c) or (d) above, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to us, we reserve the right not to credit the Wallet of the relevant Publisher(s) (or the Wallet of any other User who is due any amount from a View of the relevant Video) with the amount which would otherwise be due.
If we terminate your Fan Account on those grounds, you shall not be entitled to any refunds and any Cast Credits in your Wallet at the date of termination will be lost.
If your Fan Account is suspended, you will not be able to use the Platform during any period of suspension.
We may also terminate or suspend your Fan Account:
- if we decide to no longer provide the Platform, for example due to technical, financial or legitimate business reasons; or
- for any reason on 30 days’ notice to you.
You also acknowledge that we may cease to make the Platform available in any particular territory or region at any time without notice to you.
We may further delete your Fan Account where it is deemed ‘dormant’ and you fail to re-activate your dormant Fan Account in accordance with section 12 below.
- Termination by you
If you no longer want to use the Fan Site please stop accessing it and, if you have a Fan Account, please delete your Fan Account (see section 1.2 of the Fan Terms).

8. Recast IPR
We and/or our licensors own all rights, title and interest (including intellectual property rights) in and to the Platform.
Other than as expressly set out in these T&Cs, we do not grant you any right in respect of the Platform or any other materials. This means, for example, that using the Platform does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in the Content you access (including any branding used on or displayed via the Platform).
Any rights not expressly granted to you in these T&Cs, are hereby reserved.
9. Third party links
The Platform (and emails that we send to you in connection with the Platform) may include links to third party websites, applications and/or other digital properties (“Third Party Properties”) that are controlled and maintained by third parties. If you decide to visit any Third Party Properties or use a third party service made available through, or purchase products via, a Third Party Property, you do so at your own risk. It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself as to the reputation of the relevant third party and the services they offer.
We are not responsible for the content, accuracy or opinions expressed on Third Party Properties. Links that we make available to websites or services do not imply that we are, or our Platform is, affiliated to or associated with such websites or services.
Your interaction with any Third Party Properties is subject to the relevant third party’s own terms and policies. In particular, third parties may process your personal data in accordance with their own privacy notices. Please read all applicable terms and policies of the relevant third party before using a Third Party Property and/or using a service made available through, or purchasing products via, a Third Party Property.
You shall indemnify us and hold us harmless from all damage, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) incurred by us as a result of any claim arising out of any breach by you of these T&Cs and/or in connection with any Fan Content uploaded by you.
11. Limit on liability
- Consumers have certain legal rights when using our Platform. These are also known as “statutory rights” as they are derived from laws such as the UK Consumer Rights Act 2015. Nothing in these T&Cs affects these rights.
- Whether you are a consumer or a business user, our liability to you is not excluded or limited in any way which applicable law does not allow us to exclude or limit. In particular, nothing in these T&Cs excludes our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.

- losses that were not caused by our breach of these T&Cs or our negligence;
- any losses to the extent they are caused by your use of the Platform in breach of these T&Cs; or
- any loss or damage that was not foreseeable (meaning that when you accepted these T&Cs it was not obvious that such loss or damage would occur, and we and you did not know that it might reasonably occur).
- We are not responsible for any Content uploaded or submitted to the Platform by Users, save that, if you are a Fan, we will apply our Refund Policy if you are dissatisfied with Content on the Platform and notify us in accordance with that policy. We will not be responsible for the conduct of any User on the Platform, including any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct but please report such conduct to us using the please use the “Report” function available via the ellipsis (…) icon available on each Video.

However, we will not be responsible for damage which you could have avoided if you installed updates recommended by us (provided these updates are offered to you free of charge), or for damage which was caused by you failing to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
- If you are a consumer, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we will not be responsible to you for any business loss or damage.
