All MCN's affected by March 1st YouTube policy enforcement

Effective March 1st, 2018, YouTube begun enforcing a new policy directed at MCN's that has forced all/most MCN's to unlink channels that have hit the 4k1k mark. The policy is quite simple, ALL MCN's must now have complete oversight of ALL channels in their networks, and must build personal relationships with each of them. This policy simply ensures that all partnered channels in a network does not contain content that is in violation of YouTube's Copyright policies and/or the Community Guidelines. This marks a big change from before as there is now basically zero tolerance for all MCN's.

If your channel was unlinked from Freedom! on March 1st due to YouTube's policy we are truly sorry as we had no choice. But don't worry, that just means that your channel contains potentially questionable content that needs to addressed. You will have received an email from us with additional information, and you just need to clean up your channel so that we can re-review it.

Please visit our active community at to meet and interact with other YouTubers striving to achieve the same goals. We truly care for all sized partners at Freedom!

Please note that Freedom! no longer provides MCN services, but if you are looking for MCN specific services, please reach out to our support team at and we will check if we can recommend an MCN for you. Take a couple of minutes to also check our Talent Management agency at to see what we can do for you.
