If a channel is owned by a news publisher that is funded by a government, or publicly funded, an information panel providing publisher context may be displayed on the watch page of the videos on its channel.
The information panel providing publisher context explains how the publisher is funded and provides a link to the publisher's Wikipedia page. You'll see the information panel providing publisher context directly under the video next to the information icon .
This information panel providing publisher context is meant to give you additional information to help you better understand the sources of news content that you watch on YouTube. Inclusion of the information panel providing publisher context is based on information about the news publisher made available by Wikipedia and other independent third-party sources. It is not a comment by YouTube on the publisher's or video's editorial direction, or on a government’s editorial influence.
The information panel providing publisher context is not displayed in YouTube search results. It does not affect any of the features or monetization eligibility of the videos.
