Using Your Play Credits

The number of credits you have will appear at the top left of the screen of whatever device you are using. To use a play credit, you must press play on a video and have the video play for at least five seconds. Once a play credit is logged, you will have a full three days (72 hours) to watch the video as many times as you would like without using another play credit, even if a new month starts and your credits reset. Unused play credits will not roll over into the next month. Film credits reset on the first of the month.
