(Natural News) Brighteon.com is exploding as the alternative go-to video platform for liberty and free speech. With over 3,000 videos now live in the system, the 100+ channels now available are posting content on news, CBD and cannabis, religion and Bible studies, health freedom, meditation, firearms, solar power, off-grid living and a long list of other content areas.
Although these numbers are still minuscule compared to YouTube, in just the last 7 days, Brighteon.com has achieved the following acceleration:
- 80,000+ video views.
- 600,000+ viewed minutes of videos.
- 3000+ videos now live, with new videos posting every few minutes.
Several channels are posting near-real-time news analysis videos that are incredibly informative. Those channels include The Conservative Elite Network, The Pete Santilli Show, Red List News, The Daily Economist, Zolna Report and many others.
In addition, video embeds in articles are currently experiencing an astonishing 30% play rate, which is practically unheard of in the world of video content. Many videos are being embedded in content articles published at NaturalNews.com, NewsTarget.com, Health.news, Cancer.news, Survival.news and hundreds of other websites we publish.
Some videos are receiving special editorial coverage from our writing team. For example, see this article about a video showing a cell tower on top of a health food store. We also profile many channels as they join the network. For example, see this article about the launch of the Red List News channel.
By the way, in case you’re wondering, yes the 5-second pre-roll ad will start to introduce some variety. It won’t be the same ad all the time. Right now, we’re just using a standard, fixed pre-roll ad to help spread the word about the platform.
