“I’ve used a few MCN’s before I signed with XTreme Video, and I can safely say I’ve felt used by all of them,” said James. “However, XTreme Video are completely different. They make you feel like you’re their only client, giving off a very personal feel to the relationship. Not only that, but there’s a personal level to the communication which makes you feel like friends as opposed to partners.
