    TV might seem like a step up from YouTube

    TV might seem like a step up from YouTube. But that's not necessarily how the vloggers and their fans see it. In fact, Deyes views it as a completely different platform, one where he may be only a face or a voice to someone else's script and ideas. After all, this guy already has millions of fans by just being himself, uploading videos where he and his friends set each other silly challenges, or he plays games with his mom, and talks about life as a young British person.


    Hi,
    How should I interpret the underlined sentence? Thanks.
