JAR MEDIA is a YouTube channel run by Alex Beltman (I Hate Everything) and his friends, James and Ruben, as well as his brother, Jamie.
They are predominately known for their Podcast named the "JARCAST" and their 'blab' series called "JAR BLABS". They also have multiple skits such as "Cooking with JAR" and "IHE LEAVES JAR".
Formation and First Channel
The group started in November 2013 when they uploaded a video on "Why game review scores are STUPID". This episode featured only Alex, Jamie and Ruben, as James wasn't a member at this point. Initially JAR Media consisted of reviews of games such as Grand Theft Auto V and Batman: Arkham Origins. Later, in mid-2014, IHE used the channel to post tops fives without the other memebrs, and example of which was the top five Halo camapigns. After a period of no activety from June to December 2014 the channel shifted to blabs which were discussions on a variety of topics done by one or multiple group members generally coming from suggestions by fans. James joined during this period. The blabs would be the main content produced by Jar Media until the Jarcast. Towards the end of 2015 Jar Media began to also produce reviews of games such Fallout 4 and skits to go along with the Jar blabs.
In December of 2015, the group moved channels after finding out that their network were taking 60% of the channels earning and not letting them leave the contract.
At this point the channel only had 20,000 subscribers but in only 8 months the new channel has accumulated 60,000.
