Please Donate Today!
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:
- Restrict videos to Plus members only and raise the price to $9.99/month
- Shut down completely
- 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.
