Hello all. Been around here a while but mostly a lurker.

So my Youtube channel has around 650,000 subs and my contract with my MCN just ended and I'm looking for a new network.

Anyone have any suggestions on a good network for a channel my size? Been Offered deals by Fullscreen , Defy Media, and Freedom. Any thoughts?

Shop around all the different networks, try get a 100% YouTube rev deal or a quota on CPM deal or a lower revshare but with a sign-on bonus if you're more interested in less money up front instead of more over time.
You should try to avoid 2 years, most MCNs offer 8-12 month contracts if you push them, even for larger deals.

I can't exactly look at your channel (its not listed here) so I couldn't see anyone being able to come here and give you an offer on behalf of an MCN.

I'm not really looking for another deal offer. I'm just wondering what the general consensus is on Defy vs. Fullscreen vs Freedom for a somewhat larger channel? Anyone get burned by any of these or, alternatively, have a GREAT experience with one of them?

Defy I've never heard of. Fullscreen I've never personally been partnered with. Freedom I've been partnered with, ran a sub-network under, and worked for and I can advise you to pass up that one.

Defy is the company formed from the merger of Break and Alloy Digital. They have Smosh, ScreenJunkies, and a few other large channels, but are relatively small compared to say Maker and Fullscreen.

Try UGN (Ultimate Gaming Network) they are sorta the new kid on the block but I'm they get a lot of reviews, have a 90/10 revenue split and no contract. I'm sure they be more willing to make adjustments for a bigger channel like yourself as well

Definitely not Freedom, I stopped looking into networks so I don't have any suggestions but I've been with freedom and it was terrible.
