AwesomenessTV started as a YouTube MCN that scaled very quickly and then transformed into a cross platform media company as it has sought to grow audience and revenue.

In being agnostic are there new opportunities for partnerships with advertisers or are their hands tied as they balance relationships with distributors: YouTube, cable networks, and more?
