News publisher funding notice

This feature is currently available in the United States.

If a channel is owned by a news publisher that is funded by a government, or publicly funded, a notice may be displayed on the watch page of the videos on its channel. The notice indicates how the publisher is funded and provides a link to the publisher's Wikipedia page. You'll see the notice directly under the video next to the information icon .

This notice 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 notice 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 news publisher funding notice is not displayed in YouTube search results. It does not affect any of the features of the videos or monetization eligibility of the videos.
