DOES YOUR NETWORK VALUE YOUR CHANNEL?
In December 2013, YouTube issued a new set of rules for networks.
One in particular was made to divide channels into two categories: Affiliate and Managed.
The latter includes channels for which the network is prepared to take full resposability for the content they upload.
Since such channels are always carefully selected, managed status has considerable benefits.
These are the main differences between the two categories:
- Every video is reviewed by YouTube at their discretion (this can take hours or days) so you lose the revenue from your subscribers who watch it before YouTube approves it
- Content ID runs on your channel and creates 3rd party claims that you can dispute
- YouTube automatically enables Revenue Visibility in your YouTube Analytics
- The "Request to unlink" button appears in your YouTube Video Manager | Channel Settings (but your network may ignore these clicks)
- A Strike against your channel only affects your channel and not the network
- You may not get verified on YouTube
- Every video you upload is instantly claimed and monetized from the first view
- Content ID does not run on your channel
- You are able to get verified on YouTube
- Your network decides whether or not to enable Revenue Visibility in your YouTube Analytics (we always do)
- The only way to unpartner is to email your network
- A Strike against your channel is a Strike against the networ
As a partner, your channel will be Managed because we trust your experience and common sense.
