We’re excited to announce a new verification process for Mogulus Free channels which will give all of our best producers maximum exposure throughout the Mogulus Network, while helping Mogulus and copyright owners to better control any potential infringement. Along with that benefit comes a key change that you need to be aware of.
To begin, effective February 23, 2009, all UNVERIFIED Mogulus Free channels will be limited to an audience of 50 concurrent viewers and will not be listed at www.mogulus.com. If you apply and we verify your channel before or after February 23, your channel will support unlimited concurrent viewers and will continue to appear on the Mogulus channel guide.
In short, if you want to broadcast to more than 50 viewers at a time or want to be listed in the Mogulus Channel Guide, then you need to verify your Mogulus Free Channel.
- Mogulus does not tolerate copyright infringement by producers. Applying the viewer limit and adding the verification process will help us and copyright owners to better control any potential infringement.
- With over 150,000 channels to choose from, we need to help viewers discover great new content. With verification we can better match your channel with viewers that want what you have.
- As we continue to grow our overall concurrent viewer capacity for the Mogulus Network, we want to ensure that it is reserved for Pro and verified Free channels.
- It takes effort to build your channel, fill it with great video, and make it beautiful. By adding a step between when you launch your channel and when it is listed, viewers won’t accidentally stumble upon you until you’re ready.
- Since Mogulus Free channels are ad-supported, we want to make sure that the experience is as good as it possibly can be for everyone. By reviewing your content we can better match ads that fit your channel and your viewers.
Verified Mogulus Free channels get:
- Unlimited Concurrent Viewers: Support any number of concurrent viewers for any broadcast at any time.
- Mogulus.com Listing: Viewers can find your channel by searching or browsing in the Channel Guide or Grid at Mogulus.com
- Promotion Eligibility: The best content from verified Mogulus channels will be featured for great exposure at no cost, including spotlights and higher search rankings on Mogulus.com, promotion across the Mogulus Network, newsletter features, blog posts, and more.
And, of course, Mogulus Free is still absolutely Free!
What About Mogulus Pro?
There is no impact on Mogulus Pro channels, which already support unlimited concurrent viewers and give every producer direct control over whether or not their channel is published at Mogulus.com.
