Introducing New Pond5 Subscriptions



Introducing: New Pond5 Subscriptions!

Pond5 is proud to announce new expansive subscription plans that unlock our lowest prices and give you ultimate flexibility to use the content on any channel, worldwide, forever. With options for music, SFX, and video, no matter what you create, there’s a plan that’s right for you.

With our selection of unique content you won’t find elsewhere and fresh daily uploads from diverse artists around the globe, the Pond5 subscription offers more content for you than any other stock media marketplace. To top it off, our industry-leading license ensures all subscription downloads are safe for unlimited personal or professional projects, giving you the peace of mind to create with confidence.

How does it work?

Subscriptions are activated at the moment of purchase and include ten downloads per month from the media included in your subscription. Each time you download an item, we will confirm that you want to use your subscription to download the item.

If you don’t end up using all of your downloads for any month, don’t worry! Any unused downloads will automatically rollover to the next month. You can keep up to 20 downloads on Music or Music & SFX subscriptions and up to 120 downloads on the Footage Plus subscription.

What’s Included?

All subscriptions include:

– License to use on any platform, in any country
– Remaining download rollover
– Easy cancellation

Music Only: Includes all 1.5 million and growing music tracks available in the marketplace

Music & SFX: Includes all 1.5 million music tracks and 1.7 million sound effects available in the marketplace, with hundreds of items added everyday

Footage Plus: Includes all 1.5 million music tracks, all 1.7 million sound effects, and a selection of over 4.2 million HD & 4K videos, and over 12 million images, 3D models, and After Effects templates, with hundreds of items added every day.

To view videos, images, 3D models, and After Effects templates included in our Footage Plus subscription, filter your search results using the “Subscription” filter on the left-hand side of any search results page. An orange line on the bottom of the item thumbnail image indicates that the item is included in the subscription.


We offer both monthly and yearly plans for different media types to give you the flexibility to choose the plan that fits your content needs.

The yearly option also comes with another great bonus! Yearly subscribers get an additional 10% off all media outside the subscription and on purchases beyond your download allowance.
