The Multiverse

In late 2012, ChannelFlip launched The Multiverse, a YouTube Channel that focused on "geek flavoured entertainment."[17] The channel was created as a result of YouTube's original content partner scheme.[17] Since then, videos uploaded to The Multiverse have included notable YouTubers including Ashens, Jack and Dean and Chris Kendall. The science fiction webshow Chronicles of Syntax is exclusively available on The Multiverse.[18]It should be noted that as of the summer of 2014, the Multiverse has ceased uploading videos to the channel. [19] It is unknown if the Multiverse has completely stopped operations and the reason for why they aren't uploading videos anymore.


Fronted by Jonti Picking HuHa is a YouTube Channel that is focused on "animation".
