Will I lose pre-existing publishing properties, such as YouTube Accounts or iTunes Podcasts, if downgrading or turning off feeds from my Lightcast Control Center?

Any accounts you created yourself prior to signing up with the LightcastOVP & CDN for media distribution and delivery, will remain active. They are yours if you created them. Only channels and properties Lightcast created for you as part of sponsored services, or as part of services included in the monthly service plan, will be turned off if excluded from your active Service Package, or per your request.

iTunes Channels in particular are important to pay attention to as sometimes pre-existing iTunes Podcasts had been replaced by new iTunes Podcasts created by Lightcast as part of a service package. If a client is unaware of iTunes Podcasts being fed by the LightcastOVP, an unpleasant surprise can be the result of a downgrade or cancelation, as soon as the media feeds from the OVP are turned off, affecting iTunes Podcasts. The same is true for other connected publishing properties.
