XSplit supports the upcoming 8-Bit Salute Military Appreciation Month event for May 2016. We will be providing FREE Premium licenses to qualified participants and also join the initiative by live streaming games ourselves during the event period.

What is 8-Bit Salute and why are we supporting it?

XSplit supports 8-Bit SaluteWe’ve been supporting Operation Supply Drop since 2014 because we believe in the importance of giving back to Veterans. We don’t want to just do it through donations — we want to raise awareness about the importance of supporting Veterans and more importantly how anyone can get involved with Operation Supply Drop to do just that.

8-Bit Salute is an annual charity event run by Operation Supply Drop, an organization founded in 2010 to aid active duty service members and veterans. They support veterans through three major programs: The Teams, Thank You Deployments and The Teams.  The most notable of the programs are “Supply Drops” which are video game care packages delivered to active duty Veterans deployed, in hospitals or on military installations around the world.  The best part is that OSD supports US, NATO and ANZAC veterans.

How is XSplit supporting 8-Bit Salute?

XSplit is supporting the 8-Bit Salute event two ways — first, we are providing participants with FREE XSplit Premium license codes so they can make the most out of their live streams, and second, we are joining the month-long event ourselves! For the XSplit license, there will be a free 1-month license for every qualified participant and a 3-month Premium license for those who can raise more than $100 in donations.

To spice things up a bit, we will host a contest during the event month where those who donate $25 or more to our team (Located Here) will be entered into a drawing for two XSplit Lifetime Premium licenses. The winners will be chosen and announced at the end of the event period.

As for participating ourselves, we are ready to rock and we would love for you to join our team here:  As part of our team, you will get some love through our social media when you go live during the month of May. We will also post your schedule on our team page so everyone knows when to catch you up. 🙂
