    OKAY so here are my questions and things i need answered.

    My brother and I and a friend are all looking for channel sponsorships.

    We are about to start our channels, but we wanna know who we will partner with so we know what reqs we will be needing.

    Myself- I want to do gaming videos, maybe vlogs, skits, pretty much i wanna be able to do anything. I need a network who will help me grow, yet I want a network who will protect me from some game developers. We all have seen incidents where the developers say you can make a video for their game and then they get the video deleted for copyright stuff. (Ex: Total Biscuit) If anyone saw, he made a video about a game and kinda dissed it hardcore. The developer got mad and had the video deleted. I want a network who would help me fight to get the video back up if some angry developer or company or anything got mad and angry. Another example was Bart Baker's Lorde parody... That took him a couple days to fight to finally get back up. I want a network to not only help me grow but protect me from these big bad companies.

    My Brother- basically the same thing as me

    My friend- He is doing strictly gaming videos so he will obviously want a gaming network.


    Money is also a factor. We all would prefer more money, but if a network will pay a little less to actually ADVERTISE and help me get MY VIDEOS OUT THERE then i may consider them over the higher paying networks... once again if its like a 2$ difference then i will probably take the money because then i can advertise myself.



    Networks I've Heard about- Machinima, TGN, Rpm, NG4TV,Polaris,Plain Old Youtube

    Explain your reasons and abbreviations if you could... Im new to this

    Spoilers, that's EVERY network..making money is the name of the game. Investing in some no-name channel that just started out isn't going to happen. Not worth the time or money.

    There's no "$2" difference for you to know about; you won't know how much you'll make till you actually join and check analytics data.

    If a network isn't offering revenue share, don't even bother. Fixed CPM is a rip-off in the long-run.

    Copyright stuff, you'll be fine as long as you aren't stupid.

    If your heart is really set on making a gaming channel and getting a fanbase or w/e...You should start your channel first, get the ball rolling. Forget monetizing and networks for now.

    I suggest you do a little research on networks before you apply for one. I was in a partnership with TGN, and I thought this was a major accomplishment, but when I was actual with them, they were dicks, had no support, always paid less than what you earned...etc...
