    This week I was approached by a popular network....lets call them BullScreen... Well I was considering going with them and was talking to a manager there and yesterday during our phone call he said if I went with them they can give me a channel boost. I asked what he meant by that and he said "We can take any of the views and subscribers from channels in our network and transfer them to whatever video/channel we want." He went on to explain that he can't take existing subs & views, it has to be new subs/views happening that day.
    So if you join a network and find your views or subs dropped, then this might be the reason why... I don't know how common it is with other networks. And be sure you don't allow this in your contract! He told me its in all their contracts but can take it out if asked....

    I'm confused by this, he did say that they can't take existing subs and views. Redirecting new subs or views makes sense, but if he can't take existing ones...

    Anyhow, a part of the reason I ignore network requests. I see a lot of guys who don't read over a contract and find themselves at a huge loss in long term. Depends who it is, but Fullscreen is one of the top 5 networks.

    WHAT?! They can do that? I'm gonna contact them right away and see if they can help me redirect views and subs to my channel. That's good, right? Right now I'm making like 10$/month. If they can, this will become like 1000$/month. BTW what is your niche content and how much subs you have, so they contacted you to join them?

    I know what your talking about. I been trying to apply with them.
    Fullscreen is ass.

    If your a smaller channel this is not the network for you.
    I'm sorry.

    500K+ subs and the network will fit you.

    They have a 70/30 split contract. Minimum 2 years.
    It's crap I was previously partnered with them on my new channel around 2k subs.

    I received half of what I was going to receive.
    $$ talks. and my numbers were not adding up.

    they weren't doing shit for my channel.
    No promotion. None of that.

    So just giving you a heads up.
    This is my honest opinion im not trying to hate on anyone or any network.
    Just saying what happened to me.

    I already sent an email. Lets see what they reply. Man, I wish they helped smaller channels. Then every smaller channel will get 100k subs in no time and make tons of money and the network will make more money too. I wish they could do that. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    Dude I wouldn't even waster my time on them bro.

    I'd go with curse, or anything other then fullscreen.
    I'm applying to curse, because I heard they're transparent
    and tell you how everything is going to be.

    I'd rather be real then fake.
    Doesn't take a whole lot to be fake, but it takes a whole lot to be real.

    This business is about loyalty and numbers.

    I only emailed them to see if they can help my channel (bring in view and subs), still not replied yet. Curse is a good choice, offer 90/10 split, but don't help growing channels. You are on your own or pretty much any network.

    You are right about the fake and real part.

    I dunno why you guys still joining to networks when you can just create your own adsense account and link it. No cuts on your income and no 1 strike you're out.

    A network can't magically steal views or subscribers. What they can do is drive additional views because they can add annotations and cards to other videos.
