Pixabay has long been a go-to solution for copyright-free materials. This is no different when looking for countdowns.

2. Free Church Media
Free Church Media is a very simplistic media store that provides free content for churches. While they don’t necessarily have the most options to choose from, they do a good job of making it easy to locate and download the countdown video that you need. The majority of their countdowns use a similar font, but there are also quite a few with a different style altogether.
3. MediaShout Plus Membership
While this option isn’t completely free, the media that is provided along with MediaShout’s Plus Membership is a bonus to go along with the Phone, Live Chat, Email, and Holiday Support provided. Every month Plus members receive a folder of backgrounds and at least one countdown video provided by Playback Media. These countdown videos go along with the theme of the backgrounds for that month so that everything fits together nicely.
The huge benefit of paid countdown videos would be the variety offered. You know that you’ll be able to find a countdown video that fits perfectly with the theme of your presentation.
