George Vanous Founder of Freedom!
Why did you start Freedom!? To help YouTubers "be free" of the typical lock-‐in contracts offered by MCNs and other rules that box YouTubers in. Plus, I am a YouTuber, too, so I know exactly how it feels to be boxed in by an MCN. What is any.TV? any.TV is our company that I founded in 2013 after I left BroadbandTV (BBTV) and sold TGN to them. Freedom! is our YouTube MCN that continues the spirit of the original TGN that I founded. What is Heartbeat? Heartbeat is dating for YouTubers, but not the normal boyfriend/girlfriend dating. It is a matchmaking service based on common interest, not physical attributes :-‐) Were do you think Freedom! will be in a year? It will be one of the top YouTube networks, maybe even the top network! How do you feel about Freedom! being on the 29th place on Socialblade? I feel it is a step in the right direction, but our goal is #1 :-‐) Why do you think Freedom! is a fast growing network? Because of the amazing partners, people and networks all working together as one team to build a better network that is the Freedom! Family. :-‐)
Westerbeeker Freedom Partner
Why did you join Freedom!? I joined Freedom! because I wanted to join a network with a no lock-‐in contract because I did not want to get stuck in a network that I don’t like. After a bit of research I found Freedom!. I joined on the 15th of February, 2014 and I don’t regret my decision. What do you upload on your channel? I upload gaming videos to my channel. At the moment I am only uploading Minecraft but later on I will upload more types of gaming videos to my channel! Why do you upload Minecraft to your channel? I upload Minecraft to my channel because it was one of the first PC games played and you can do so much in the game. What games did you play in the past? I used to play a lot of Lego games, Mario games, Pokémon games, Club Penguin, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, and Zoo Tycoon 2. I still play some of those games sometimes because they are a lot of fun! What is your tip for people starting their own channels? First of all have a good name. Don’t name your channel “theswegmaster94465” because it looks extremely unprofessional. Also try uploading once a week or more to get a nice audience. One of the most important things is the audio quality, without good audio quality you are going to grow really slowly. I know this because of past experience. Channel link: http://www.youtube.com/user/Westerbeeker
Relauch Of Freedom Idol Freedom! Idol is a community channel where Freedom! partners can upload their videos. If you upload your videos to Idol you will get feedback on how to improve your videos. It is a great way for your channel to grow.

Freedom! Idol was closed for a while. Nobody could upload videos or join. This luckily changed, Freedom! Idol has relauched!
