NowThis STEALS SourceFed Nerd's Channel!? - The Know Game News
00:09:30
Sourcefed, one of the jewels of YouTube's early original content investment efforts, was shut down earlier this year by new owner Group Nine. That was a dark time. Now it's darker. NowThis has decided those million subscribers look mighty convenient and have taken over the channel with zero warning with the intent to do THE EXACT SAME THING. Disclaimer: we're not really impartial on this story. We know too many of the SF folks affected by the shutdown.Written By: Brian Gaar and Ashley JenkinsEdited By: Kdin JenzenHosted By: Ashley Jenkins and Jon RisingerGet More News ALL THE TIME: Follow The Know on Twitter: Follow The Know on Facebook: Rooster Teeth Store: Rooster Teeth: Business Inquiries: Subscribe to the RT Channel: Subscribe to the AH Channel: Subscribe to the Let's Play Channel: Subscribe to The Know Channel: Subscribe to the Red vs. Blue Channel: Subscribe to the Funhaus Channel: Subscribe to the Slow Mo Guys Channel:

Nobody cares about SourceFed, it's been irrelevant since it lost its original hosts.

This story breaks my heart, as a long term SF fan this really stings. A great channel with great personalities and clever videos that was shut down way before its time.

They also stole Seeker Daily's channel. They are kniving thieves who need to resort to this crap to get views and subscribers. SHAME ON THEM!

This shouldn't surprise anyone. NowThis is a business made of a bunch of shitty people whose only aim is to absorb and destroy competition from within. They are a virus and I will laugh gleefully when the tables are turned.

Hey Folks, remember «the patch» podcast we all loved that went away end of last year while being told it would be back this year....well it's back, but behind a paywall. What a slap in the face to fans who loved it. tweet at @theknow and @Roosterteeth and let them know we want it back.
