Fortnite Soundwaves Series: Gen Hoshinmo Show Content Creation

Content creators in the Support-A-Creator (SAC) program will be able to host VOD content from the Gen Hoshino show on YouTube and monetize it for seven days, and no takedown notifications should occur during this time. More info:

  • In order to monetize their Gen Hoshino show content, SAC members need to link their YouTube and Support-A-Creator accounts.
  • IMPORTANT: When uploading the content to YouTube, be sure to upload it as Unlisted or Public. If you upload the video as Private, it is possible you could receive a monetization claim on your video.
  • For uploading the content on other platforms, refer to the channel's platform policies for tips on how to avoid copyright strikes.
  • Not in SAC? Don't worry, you can still share your highlights from the experience. However, you will not be able to monetize this content on YouTube.
