    This is probably the question most asked to me via PMs on yttalk by about 200% :D
    “How would I go about creating a YouTube Network”.

    Well There`s really three types of Network you could create, this thread will also tell you how :)

    Multi-Channel Network (MCN) :
    So a MCN has one or multiple CMS(s) that it can link itt`s partner`s channels to.
    The reason for this is to cater to revenue and support for that channel.
    Similar to how a talent group would operate with a music artist.

    Propriety Network/Virtual Network/Content Distrabution Network (VN) :
    A VN would be straight under a MCN, usually has some sort of CMS/Partnering Dashboard access.
    How these differ from MCNs is they take a portion of then revenue the MCN takes from a partner, In return for focusing on a certain niche. (e.g. A Tech VN under an everything MCN)
    They also may decide to offer better features, help, support etc

    Content Aggregator (CA) :
    A CA operates from under a VN, and will take a portion of the VN`s revenue (not usually more of the partner`s) in return for operating as a network to cater towards a more specific niche (e.g mobile tech under a tech network).

    How to form one of the above :

    MCN :
    Well to form an MCN you need to get into direct contact with that management team in Google.
    They require you to have a certain amount of staff including an ad sales team.
    Aswell as set up as a company, have a decent start-up capital.
    And a long list of requirements that is not undertaken by most.

    VN :
    To form a VN you have to contact a MCN and ask, note that only a few actually have Vns.
    The below list is of all that`re currently accepting, note that as of when I`m posting this, Both Fullscreen and ZoominTV arn`t accepting them.

    ForelaDigital
    BentPixels
    Iricom / Iricom Ukraine
    XMediaDigital
    QuizGroup
    Maker
    Viso

    CA :
    To form a CA you have to contact a VN and note that not alot of Vns are allowed to have any.

    Yep, to become an MCN is pretty hard, there`s less than 100 of them after 7 years on them being around ;)

    wow.. I guess they're the main ones though.. you don't really need many of them as they just make little sub networks and people join those and some of the subnetworks allow people to start even smaller networks :)

    Great post, sure it will be of use to people. It may even help to close the floodgates to all the kids that want to create a network for $$ and become ATV copies, if they realise its not as easy as it sounds :joyful2:

    From when did ZoominTV stop taking VN? How much i have knowledge about, i've recently, i think about 3-4 weeks back i spoke to them for a network and i did get accepted after an interview. Why did they suddenly stop accepting VN under them?
