I am having trouble logging into the site.  What am I doing wrong?

I referred someone to this site using my Learn and Earn affiliate link and I do not see my commission in the affiliate control panel.  Why didn't the commission register?

There can sometimes be a delay of up to 30 minutes before an affiliate sale registers with the system and shows in your affiliate control panel.  Please let at least 30 minutes pass before submitting a support ticket for this issue.

My subscription was cancelled and I do not understand why!

If your subscription was cancelled by someone other than yourself, then it could be for a variety of reasons.  One common reason is that your credit card that you have attached to your subscription to TonyBrownsJournal.com became expired during your subscription.  Therefore, it is crucial to keep  your payment details up to date inside of your Paypal account.  Another possibility is that a moderator may have proactively cancelled your subscription.  We expect our subscribers to remain respectful and polite when communicating via our Facebook commentary section on each program video.    One other possibility is that you were caught violating our legal policies.  Please refer to our privacy policy, membership terms and service, affiliate terms and conditions, and our website terms of use documentation to ensure that you remain inside our subscriber guidelines.

Are all of the Tony Browns Journal programs available for viewing through this website?  

Currently, there are 425+ programs that have been converted to digital.  There will be nearly 1,000 Tony Brown's Journal programs available to stream on this website once we are completely finished with the video conversion process.

What is the playback quality of the programs?

We have invested significant time, capital, and energy into converting and restoring the Tony Brown's Journal series.  It is important to remember that some of these episodes were recorded in the 1970's.  Therefore, the original master films of these programs had aged significantly.  Additionally, the video resolutions of film from earlier generations was not as crisp and clean as modern day film.  However, we have taken the converted video footage and put it through a double pass encoding process in order to create the best possible video quality for playback through this website.  There are some programs that may have occasional flicker or choppiness, as that may have been the best playback that we could produce when considering the age and condition of the original program master film.  If for some reason a certain program video on this site does not meet basic guidelines for playback (such as video/audio voice syncing), then we would appreciate it if you reported that video by clicking here.  We can then reattempt the conversion process for that video to possibly improve the video playback quality.

Can I download the programs from TonyBrownsJournal.com for playback while not connected to the internet?

No, the videos will only play while streaming through the internet to your computer or mobile device.  The videos on this site are not able to be downloaded to your computer.
