Brighteon.com is launching in less than 60 days. It’s a free “YouTube alternative” that protects free speech and provides video content creators with a platform to participate in news, conversations and public debate. Notably, YouTube, Google, Facebook and Twitter are now aggressively banning all conservative speech, somehow believing that “diversity” is achieved through the censorship of opposing views.
Brighteon.com is a robust video platform that’s free for everyone to use. We have committed over $1 million to this project so far, and it’s being built on a video infrastructure that can readily support over one billion video views per month. Users will be able to embed video players on their blogs and websites, and videos play seamlessly across multiple mobile devices and platforms due to dynamic bit-rate video delivery and intelligent video transcoding.
Just like with YouTube, you will be able to upload videos, manage videos, share videos, see how many views and likes they’re getting and more. (Video sharing will start out with more traditional shares such as FB, but we are quickly moving it over to GAB, Diaspora and other alternative share sites.) Video comments are also supported on each play page. But unlike YouTube, Brighteon.com does not spy on its users. There’s no tracking of user video views, search terms or other metrics. All users view all videos anonymously.
Video content creators who will be using Brighteon.com include Next News Network, the Grow Network (a food channel), InfoWars, SGT Report, Pete Santilli, Natural News, The Gateway Pundit and literally thousands of others. We are only activating a few hundred content channels on launch day in order to test the robustness of the system, but before the end of July, we plan to have thousands of channels active. (NOTE: If you find any of the people or organizations listed above to be controversial, launch your own channel and straighten us all out!)
Watch my video here for full details about the launch of Brighteon.com, and visit Brighteon.com now to request a video content channel. (We will start approving and opening channels for video uploads starting mid-June.)
New revenue opportunity for video content creators
Brighteon.com doesn’t pay video content creators based on views, but an entire e-commerce store called “Shop.Brighteon.com” will be launched with the system, and all content creators can easily opt-in to the e-commerce back-end to earn affiliate revenues on purchases of the products we offer, ranging from nutrition and superfoods to preparedness gear. When you opt in, a “shop now” button appears below your videos, and all clicks through that button earn you affiliate revenues on all purchases, without exception.
Launching with this program is some new gear, including a new combat knife, an anti-radiation water filter, a new organic storable food meal kit and much more. We are also actively seeking to partner with other gear providers to carry their products in our ever-expanding store. (If you are a product manufacturer, reach out to us via the advertising email contact on Brighteon.com.)
This is all supported by a massive new e-commerce fulfillment infrastructure we’ve built over the last two years, with a new, climate-controlled warehouse, new offices, a huge e-commerce software upgrade and new fulfillment lines that can now handle 400% greater order fulfillment capacity than what we were previously limited to.
Brighteon.com is roughly 60 days away. We are aiming for a July 4th launch, give or take a few days for last-minute quality control changes to the system. Video uploads for approved accounts will be opened up in the last half of June.
Request your content channel now at Brighteon.com. Most importantly, those of you who are getting banned by YouTube, please SAVE all your video files so you can upload them to Brighteon.com, which will be an important video repository for speech that’s being banned almost everywhere else.
