ARMdevices.net Paid Early Access Channel youtube.com/paidvideo

Posted by – April 13, 2014

I’m launching the $50/month ARMdevices.net Early Access Channel where you can get Early Access to hundreds of videos before they get released (one every 8hrs) at ARMdevices.net, especially useful during conferences like at the current Hong Kong Fair when hundreds of videos are filmed and uploaded.

Subscribers to this ARMdevices.net Early Access channel also have a possibility to request for a video to never get released publicly for a $500 fee (if for example you see an interesting video about a supplier with whom you would like to keep an exclusive relationship)

The priority is to upload all the videos to the paid channel as soon as they get filmed, they will then get titles and descriptions later once they get published to the main http://youtube.com/charbax public free channel and posted here on ARMdevices,net

Subscribers to the ARMdevices.net Early Access channel can also get direct support from me through direct messaging on the YouTube channel, I can offer to answer you at least one of your messages per month (5 minutes per month).
