In September 2017, conservative youtuber Lauren Southern said she was considering switching to the site in response to YouTube's demonetization of political videos. Southern has automatically mirrored her YouTube channel on BitChute since March 23, 2017.
In March 2018, the site was redesigned and got a new logo.
The BitChute website acts as a front end and portal for WebTorrent. When users upload a video it is converted to a WebTorrent and given a page on BitChute's website.
There has been conflict between YouTube and creators over the content of some videos uploaded. The company responded in some cases by banning creators, blocking their videos or channel "demonetization". As a response, some popular creators have started BitChute channels. These include Dave Cullen (Computing Forever) and various conservative channels.
