We are closing down

After a year trial, we have decided to close FreeJack TV and focus our efforts 100% on the Conspiracy Channel.   Please visit ConspiracyChannel.net for updates on what is going on!

We need YOUR help to keep us on the air!

It’s been 3 months since we launched our “Free” ad-supported apps and the response has been insane!¬† ¬†Thank you to all of you who are watching regularly and spreading the word.¬† It’s amazing to watch this channel grow so much in just the last few months.

Unfortunately, we have hit a MAJOR snag.   Turns out all those videos you are watching are costing us a lot of money.

We were informed by our video hosting service that our bill would be increasing a staggering 2,260% for October.   It was originally $500 per year but due to our growing numbers that has ballooned to almost $1,000 per month.  Ouch!

While the advertising is paying for some of this bandwidth, it doesn’t cover it all and we are facing a really tough decisions.¬† ¬†We had 3 choices:

  1. Restrict videos to Plus members only and raise the price to $9.99/month
  2. Shut down completely
  3. Have a donation drive and let our fans decide if we keep going

As such we’re going to be having a Donation Drive to help pay for the outstanding bandwidth.

I can’t even believe it has come to this!¬† ¬†In my 20 years of running Alt-media sites I never “needed” donations.¬† ¬†Sure, some people would donate, but the donations just went back in to buy new equipment or pay a hosting¬† bill.

But here we sit and I am forced to come to you and ask for a few donations to keep this bastion of alternative media a-float.

If we can raise $1,000 by January 1st, we will be able to make this jump to battling the mainstream media head on!   We have plans in place to expand this network dramatically, but we need to cross this hurdle first.

Any few dollars you can spare will go a long way to pushing Conspiracy Channel into a weapon of mass-information for the asleep people in this world.

Please Donate Today!

FreeJack TV making more changes…

First, I want to say thank you so much for all your continued support for making this network a success. ¬† It’s amazing to watch us grow and it’s all because of you!

I’ve been on a bit of a vacation since the end of June. ¬† It was time for me to recharge and refocus on the network.

That’s not to say I haven’t been working though!

Over the summer I’ve been having lots of chats with our content partners, long time subscribers and other people involved with the network.

The question was, how do I expand the network while cutting my work load down a bit. I love you folks, but 18 hour days for 10 months a year over the last 3 years has really run me down.

Here is the plan on how…

1 – Bring all channels under one network banner & paying for all this sh*t

I operate 3 channels (soon to be 5).   Conspiracy Channel, FreeJack TV and DarkSpace TV all fly under my business name of Rovidx Media.    To make things simpler I will be combing all of them into one umbrella network (FreeJack TV Network or FTVN in shortform).

Don’t worry, you as a viewer don’t have to do anything and will receive the same content!

Secondly I’m eliminating the “Rentals” section and replacing it with a new Podcast section with a brand new audio player.

And finally we will be only providing a “Ad supported” and “Plus Subscription” services from here on out.

2 – Pick our platforms to focus on

It seems every day we are getting requests to add support for new devices.   The problem is they all have their little differences and nuances that make it really time consuming to provide apps on every platform.

I have decided that from here on out we will only focus on the top 3 media streaming devices.    As of September 2017, those are:

  1. Roku
  2. Amazon’s FireTV
  3. Any device that runs Android TV (including GoogleCast support)

At some point if we grow enough, we may add more devices if the demand is there.

3 – Live Channels and Studio Spaces

The first 4 years of this network where dedicated to creating a video on-demand library of suppressed talk shows and documentaries. ¬† Now that I am finally happy with our system it is time to focus on phase 2… ¬†Studio Spaces & Live Streaming.

Our software is ready for “Live” channels, but we have no space to film them. ¬† After looking at the money situation, the only way we could do it would be to have a donation drive.

With the money received we will be funding the creation of 3 studio spaces (1 US, 1 Canadian and 1 UK/Europe) and paying for the bandwidth necessary to provide live video.

Watch for an announcement coming later this month!

Conclusion

Running this network is a dream come true for me.   I have always wanted to provide suppressed information to the masses so to run FreeJack, Conspiracy Channel and DarkSpace is truly living my passion.

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!

-Rob

Freejack Updates and Changes

It’s been almost a month since we switched to our new system (and name) and we are extremely happy with the results.

One of the most important issues we wanted to rectify with the new system was our ability to get statistics on what people are watching.    For the last 3 years we had very little solid stats to go on, so a lot of our decisions were based on guesses.

Now in a short time we were able to get a much better handle on what you folks want from our channel and what we can do to make it more enjoyable for you, our viewers.

Starting today, we will be implementing the following changes:

  1. You will no longer need a +Plus membership to view our entire library.   All films, series and talk shows will be available with Ads.   Of course, if you want to remove the ads, you can become a +Plus member.
  2. Ad plays are being increased to every 10 minutes (it was originally every 15).   This will allow us to give you more content for free while still being able to fund our operation.
  3. Rentals will be removed soon.    We will be moving a great number of the Rental titles to the free section as soon as the paperwork is signed
  4. More content inbound! ¬† We have a bunch of content backlogged and will be uploading it over the next few months. ¬† We have reached our monthly “bandwidth cap” for uploads, so we have to wait until the first of July to upload more.
  5. Fund raiser coming!   We are going to be running a fundraiser soon.   Stay tuned for more details.

More changes will come as we analyze the numbers and figure out how we can do a better job at finding you the content you want to see.

Uruguay: Digital Registration for a License to Smoke Cannabis

Pot-heads around the world rejoiced that Uruguay was legalizing the possession of cannabis, the devil is in the details.

Though the price will be highly accessible, only $1.30 per gram compared with $3 on the street, consumers must register with the government first. They will then be required to identify themselves with a digital thumb scan to withdraw their weekly maximum of 10g. h/t The Guardian

Much like Canada’s upcoming legislation, this is a move for control by the government. ¬†We all know that the drug war has failed and the “deep state” knows it too.

What we are now seeing is a change in tactics. ¬† People who consume¬†cannabis generally have little regard for institutions. ¬†Now there is an easy way for the government to identify those of us that are more “subversive”.

 

Mega man Kim Dotcom: I knew Seth Rich was the @Wikileaks Source

We have been on the trail of the Seth Rich murder since before the US election (see our video The World War 3 Conspiracy). Now another major bombshell has been dropped by Internet mogul Kim Dotcom on Twitter.

Kim, who is the mastermind behind the Mega cloud file service, also tweeted that he would discuss with his legal team on Monday and asking followers to “be patient”.

Please make sure to share this story on social media to ensure the word gets out and check back Monday for more information.

Incoming Roku App Update…

After discovering in December that our app was suffering from some significant bugs I started working on a brand new system that would replace our aging and outdated system.

An hour ago I submitted the Roku app based on this new system. ¬† ¬†So what’s new?

[jaw_media_gallery gallery=”69404″ type_gallery=”horizontal” thumb_gallery=”6″ ][jaw_clear]

Totally redesigned Roku app

The new app was designed from the ground up with 2 specific goals in mind.  First, it must be really easy to use and secondly it must be extremely lightweight and fast.   It was also designed to be more secure and give our viewers more privacy options.

New User Interface

Upon loading the new interface, you will see we have changed quite a bit.   Our content is now divided up in to 5 separate areas РTalk Shows, Films, Series, Rentals and Live Streams.  In each area you will find the content divided up by show/genre/series.

New “Live Stream” Area

Live streaming is finally within our grasps.   If we can reach 1,000 subscribers we will be launching a new 24 hour live streaming channel exclusively for FreeJack TV.

In order to get ready for this goal we have added a “Live Stream” area that already contains 2 live video channels (TWiT.tv and InfoWars) as well as selection of live audio feeds from various underground online radio stations.

Return of Rental-on-Demand

We have signed a few deals with film distributors to bring back our rental section.   Each of these films is a high quality release in every major genre.   Stay tuned for more announcements!

New Account System

With the old system accounts where complicated to use.   With the new system you are able to login with the same username and password that you use on the website.   If you own other Smart TV devices, you will be able to use the same account across all platforms (when the apps become available).

Watch on Mobile, Web & Roku ad-free with our new +Plus member features

Another annoying fact with the old system was that you need separate +Plus accounts for each platform.   As we move to the new system you will be able to use your subscriber features (Ad free viewing, Exclusive videos) on your PC/Mac, Smart Phone, Tablet or Roku device.

Other notable additions

  • We have added Closed Caption support (aka subtitle support) to our system. ¬†Currently only a handful of content have subtitles but more are coming soon!
  • Trick-Play Support: ¬† For the non-techie, this means when you fast-forward or rewind videos a bar containing thumbnail screenshots will appear and allow you to see where you are skipping to. ¬† Again, this is currently limited to a small amount of content, but we will hope to have network wide support by the end of the year
  • New watch later system – You can now manage & view your cue online as well as on Roku
  • Updated purchase flow – It’s now easier than ever to upgrade to a +Plus subscription or rent a video with Roku’s in-app purchasing
  • Update resume system – When you watch a video your position is now saved in the cloud so when you watch on a different device or platform, you can continue where you left off
  • Delete your data and account – We now allow you to delete data like your “Watch History” and even your account to help protect your privacy

I’m probably forgetting a few things, but you get the picture… this is a massive update to our fight against censorship.

Don’t forget… the new app drops June 1st! ¬†Until then you can check out a bunch of the new content here on the website.
