How Rewarded Video Works

Thank you for joining the HideoutTV network of rewarded video sites. HideoutTV & its’ sister video sites enable our users to earn points in the most entertaining way possible thanks to our carefully curated content, with tons of great new videos added daily!

So, how exactly does rewarded video work?

  1. You must always be logged in to earn points. To earn points as you watch, you must always be logged into your Hideout account. If you are not logged in, points will not accumulate within your account.
  2. Earn points for each ad viewed. Points are accumulated for each ad that you watch throughout the duration of a video.
  3. Automated crediting of points earned. Your balance is displayed directly under the video player. When the background of your balance is grey, you must continue watching to earn any points for ads viewed. Once the background of your balance turns green, if you have watched ads your points will automatically be credited to your account. At this point, you may continue watching the video for more ad opportunities, or if you are not enjoying the video, you can skip or navigate to other videos.

  4. Earn an average of 2.9 points per ad view. Users in your country earn an average of 2.9 points per ad view. Here are some tips to earn as much as possible:
    • Actively watch videos in your browser, with your sound on to earn 3.3 points per ad viewed.
    • FireTV App. Download the Hideout FireTV App and watch to earn up to 5 points per ad viewed.
    • Switch channels from time to time to maximize your ad opportunities and discover great new content from many of our contributors.
    • Google Chrome generally provides the best watching and ad experience. We highly recommend using Chrome to enjoy our videos.
  5. Redeem your points. Hideout offers a variety of ways for you to redeem your points.
    • Redeem points to a linked partner. Hideout works with hundreds of publisher partners where you can link your account and redeem your points to that partner site/app. Learn more about Linking your HideoutTV Account
