It is not necessary to have a YouTube channel in order to use Rumble. If videos are uploaded under the Video Management Exclusive license Rumble will promote your videos on YouTube (on one of your YouTube channels) as well as outside of YouTube on platforms including Rumble.com, AOL, MSN, Yahoo and many other partners such as TV outlets, etc.
That is the key benefit of Rumble compared to YouTube; additional distribution which YouTube does not offer. But If you do own a YouTube channel, it is perfectly fine to use Rumble. We can provide additional YouTube promotion by placing your video on one of our specialized channels such as Rumble Viral or Rumble food, Rumble Cats, etc. All of which have a reach of over 100 millions views a month via Facebook and Youtube.
