Google unveils MCN directory at VidCon 2015

Google has announced a new Service Provider Directory at this weekend’s VidCon event, which is now available to creators.

The new service, released in the Creator Academy, will provide details on various services and Multi-Channel Networks (MCN’s) that offer support to many of YouTube’s stars.

MCN details will include company backgrounds, samples of affiliated channels and contact information.

To be included in the new directory, a Multi-Channel Network or service must be YouTube Certified and should adhere to community guidelines.

Multi-Channel Networks provide services to YouTube channels, including help with monetisation, cross-promotion and audience development. The service is normally provided in exchange for a percentage of a YouTube channel’s Adsense revenue.

There’s already a large number of MCN’s available to YouTubers and many video-makers have been unsure on which they should join, if any at all.

YouTube’s new directory is a step forwards in making the process more secure for those looking to partner with a network and grow their channel.
