Information panel providing publisher context

This feature is currently available in the United States, United Kingdom, and Ireland.

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 indicates 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 intended to provide viewers with additional information to help them better understand the sources of news content that they watch on YouTube. It is not a comment by YouTube on the publisher's or video's editorial direction or a government’s editorial influence. 

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 and does not reflect a determination made by YouTube.

The information panel providing publisher context is not displayed in YouTube search results. It does not affect any of the features of the videos or monetization eligibility of the videos.
