Great way to start my morning. (at Black Gold Records)
I saw the coolest pizza this weekend.
We’re big believers in transparency and knowledge-sharing, and it’s time to put our
moneyrevenue stats where our mouth is. Today we’re launching VHX Stats, which will update daily, so you can watch the market grow as more people sell films and video content directly to fans.
The numbers that we’re putting out into the world so far are:
- Number of titles for sale
- VHX total gross revenue
- Number of total transactions
- Number of customers who’ve bought more than one title from VHX (something we want to improve)
- Sales by geographic region
…with more to come. Creators want to have a conversation about the economics of selling their work, and this is our small contribution. Take a look, ask questions, and help us make it better.
Just launched the VHX Stats page! Check out those #s, but focus on the SVG, gradient & globe animations @stevenbone and I got made http://vhx.tv/stats
I had an awesome time with caseypugh and kkapples at the Com Truise concert tonight. It was bonkers.
Saw this dog and fish hangin’ out today. (at Smith Canteen)
Who knew a 45° pizza could be so hot? I drew this a while ago, animated in the name of the VHX pizza party / hack day today!
After two years we were finally able to capture the team in a photo.

VHX is now open to the public
When we launched VHX, we never imagined we’d get to work with creators like Kevin Spacey, Dave Grohl, Ira Glass, and Aziz Ansari.
We’ve been in private beta the last two years, helping distribute feature films, documentaries, TV shows, comedy specials, concerts, lectures and more. We’ve helped launch Camp Takota, Upstream Color, Mistaken for Strangers, the Oscar-nominated The Act of Killing, and many more. VHX now has over 300 titles available for sale, over $3M in gross transactions, and almost 500,000 customers worldwide.
And we are so excited for our next moves.
VHX is now open to the public. Anyone can sign up and start selling immediately. Our internet-video-shaped doors are wide open: https://vhx.tv
We are lowering our pricing. VHX is free to sign up and use, and we charge just 10% + $0.50 per transaction (down from 15-20%). No extra charges for credit card processing or anything – that’s everything. Transparency? Transparency. If you’re an existing publisher this pricing will be effective as of March 1st.
Anything that used to be sold on DVD can be sold on VHX. Our platform works for a lot more than just film and TV. Faith, fitness, lifestyle, education…the list goes on. VHX also works for organizations both big and small: individuals, distributors, studios, networks, and more. Make a site to sell your work, distribute your project, and own the relationship with your audience. VHX is the technology platform that lets you run your own iTunes or Netflix. Your digital copies replace the old physical, anywhere in the world.
Check out our fancy new homepage to learn more and start building your site. Contact us with any questions or feedback. We can’t wait to work with you!
