A few months back, I heard on the radio that Youtube was going to be launching 100 premium channels with different brands and celebrities that would feature higher quality videos. Combined each of these channels would produce over 25 hours of original footage everyday (that’s an hour more than a day for those of you counting). I thought it was pretty interesting, but didn’t really think too much of it.
Fast forward to a few weeks back and I get an email asking if I would be interested in helping one of these channels called Network A get rolling by compiling some lists of some of the best videos to pop up online.
This channel is an action sports specific channel (BMX, skate, snow, ski, moto and surf) that will feature original videos from some of the top film makers and riders from around the world from all these sports, along with some of the best of what Youtube already has to offer.
Fast forward to today, and they finally launched the channel for the world to see and I’m psyched. This channel will be a featured channel that will put BMX among the others sports in front of the millions of people who may check out the channel.
Above you can find the first original BMX video to premiere in the BMX Section featuring Chad Kerley and Connor Lodes getting in a round of Calling The Shots by none other than Justin Kosman. After you check out the video, go check out what Network A is all about since I have a feeling you will be hearing a lot more about it in the future.
