Welcome to Brighteon, the free speech alternative to YouTube.
Creating an account allows you to subscribe to your favorite channels and easily see NEW videos from your followed channels when you log in. You can also 'Like' your favorite videos.
Unlike Google and YouTube, we do not shadowban new videos from channels you subscribe to. If you subscribe to a channel, you will see ALL of the new videos from that channel on your home page when you log in. You can unsubscribe from any channel at any time.
As a Brighteon user, you may also upload your own videos to your channel. The more views your videos receive, the more you UNLOCK permissions to upload even more videos. See the video unlocking chart here.
In the near future, you will be able to message other Brighteon users using short text posts. As a channel owner, you can broadcast these text posts to all your subscribers, and they will see your posts on their home page when they log in.
Brighteon does NOT track users to build user psychological profiles like Google, YouTube, Facebook and other evil tech companies. As a result, we do NOT monetize user profiles in any way. Our sole source of revenue comes from the ads displayed on video view pages and your purchases through the Brighteon Store.
We do NOT display ads based on user profiles. We choose ads to display entirely based on the content of the video where the ads appear. Thus, we are not profiling users, but rather matching ads with content. This is how we respect your privacy and anonymity.
If you choose to upload videos to your channel (it's your choice), please note that while Brighteon supports free speech, this platform is not appropriate for pornography, how-to terrorism videos or other videos which may directly call for violence or violate U.S. federal law or violate intellectual property (you cannot, for example, upload full-length Hollywood movies or TV show episodes). However, we welcome videos on political speech, vaccines, natural medicine, science, history, culture, entertainment and more.
Join Brighteon now and start subscribing to the channels you wish to follow. New channels are joining Brighteon each day, especially as the evil tech giants escalate their censorship of free speech.
