This is Ivolve TV.
Ivolve TV expands from one core philosophy. We believe that media has a social obligation to facilitate positive growth for humanity.
Media has more power than any other form of communication to reach more people in a short period of time. But, that power has been squandered on such causes as "numbing people out" with mindless entertainment and selling you toilet paper, beer and fast food.
In a world facing so many challenges, we believe that media should be used to infom, enlighten, unite and enrich our journeys.
We believe that the evolving media consumer is looking for something more. We offer you a growing collection of entertaining shows and topics that are also meant to nurture your quest for knowledge and personal growth.
We explore a variety of subjects from contemporary spirituality to science, spirit and mysteries such as ET’s, life after death and more.
We believe that these topics are intertwined as we evolve our understanding of our reality.
We also know that once your mind begins to ask questions, many of these topics will merge before you during your journeys of exploration.
Here's Ivolve TV founder Ron James and "I Am": Director Tom Shadyac talking about this issue...
Why a viewer-supported format?
Ivolve TV is a community. It is our goal to deliver the best special-interest media in the world. The traditional way of covering these costs is through advertising inserted into the content and sponsored programming that contains product placements and pitches. This is not the direction we choose to pursue.
Eventually, if we do allow advertising on our site, those companies will be approved only because they operate with certain standards. The standards will include living wages for all full-time employees and sustainable business practices. Advertisers who find their way to Ivolve TV will be displaying a badge of honor if their ads appear on our site.
Obviously this is not conducive to automated ad server programs such as the ones that distribute ads to YouTube and more.
The other accepted platform is the viewer-supported format. Clients pay a small amount to watch individual shows or subscribe to the entire site. We understand that in the YouTube generation, people have come to expect all of their media for free. But we don't work for advertisers. We work for you.
As we grow, we are a gathering place for people like you who want to expand your personal journey and be part of a positive evolution on this planet. Your support makes you part of one of the most awesome clubs in the world.
You may choose to enjoy a single video, all of the videos in a playlist, or for the best value, subscribe to Ivolve TV for only $7.99 a month. Your subscription entitles you to complete access to all of our media, subscriber-only privileges, events and discounts on select shopper experiences.
If you are not ready to subscribe, enjoy our many TV Channels, playing free TV 24 hours a day in a variety of categories you love.
