I'm new to a lot of these terms. What's an MCN?
It basically stands for Multi - Channel Network. It's a channel that posts content from multiple channels, and pays each channel a percentage.

It can be good for those that can benefit from the network channels viewer base, and size.

If you have a look on youtube at something like 'frederator' an animation network that posts entries from all sorts of animation channels. or for the really big ones, 'machinima' though youd have little exposure on a network that posts hundreds of videos a day :)

The only reason i signed up for a network was to get paid at the end of the month.. unlike adsense which has a $100 cap fee until you cancel your adsense account.. then Google sends you your money (not sure if that has changed). I am looking for a network that isn't as useless as Freedom and will accept my low sub count. Other than that meh I can buy a few games here and there whereas before I couldn't until months later.... being unemployed makes you do some stupid s**t :)

MCN's are not right for everyone. They can have great benefits, especially if they take an active approach to promoting you, but before joining one, make sure you fully understand what you are getting into.
