This weekend we’ll be running advertisements below the fold on all video pages with 1,000 views or greater. It's the first time we've run an ad campaign on Streamable, and it will probably be a little jarring at first.
Many of you will want to know why we're running ads, and the answer is probably not very surprising -- we need to make money to keep Streamable up and running. We're a very small team and we run super lean, but our hosting and bandwidth bills are currently running tens of thousands of dollars a month, and growing fast!
Pics or it didn't happen? Here's a screenshot from Fastly (our CDN):
We promise to keep advertisements family-friendly and to not interfere with the Streamable viewing and upload experience. If you have any feedback or questions regarding our ad program, please don't hesitate to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
