Bliptv Killing Accounts

8 posts in this topic

So yesterday I was not surprised to get an e-mail from Bliptv that they were going to close my account due to reasons of not having a high viewership.  Not surprised due to me not posting anything on there for about a year or two.  But so I went to check out a friend of mine, Decker Shado (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsxn3qKFpbnD-8f1d9F5ipA), and found out he got the same e-mail along with many others.  I am not sure what is going on exactly but Blip is telling a lot of people who use their service that they are not good enough to stay on Blip.  They have some new business model (which I will look up) that apparently clashes with many people who are making a living on internet reviews.  I don't know.  I know I am mad.  This leaves just Youtube and Youtube has proven to be very fidgety about that stuff.  What do you guys think?

That's a bit weird though isn't it? How are new video makers supposed to garner an audience on Blip if they start off with a low number of views and then get kicked off? 

It seems that any successful video hosting site these days forgets that they built themselves up from people just sharing videos onto the internet and are now primarily money focused. 

Whilst as business I can sort of understand it - it still suck dong.

Even from a business stand point this lacks foresight. You remove any hope of new producers that could be a hit larger than anything on Blip but due to policy changes, you will not see that happen. Not on Blip anyway.

I'd say let Blip suffer and let them kill potential new video producers, they'll lose market share in the long run because of dumb crap like this. Blip just comes off as snooty if you don't have X amount of viewers and X amount of videos per week so I didn't even bother.

With the bad luck people have with youtube not allowing them to post content this could cause a lot of problems for people. I know they closed Leon Thomas' account who did Heart of Gaming and Attack of the Trek and who currently does Renegade Cut.

Well, Diamanda Hagan, one of Joe's TGWTG colleagues, is moving to YouTube, so the Blip is probably kicking itself right now.
