How Do I Make The "What to Watch Next" Feature Show Up on My Channel

I can't seem to get the "what to watch next" feature to show up to returning subscribers or new viewers. I can see it when I view my channel when logged in but once I switch to the view from a different account or I've logged out, it doesn't show up. I want it to look like the image above, but on my channel it only shows the videos in either a horizontal or vertical line (it let's me choose) but there is no option that I can find to make it look like this to other people. So how do I make it look like this, with the one larger video and the three off to the side?

Do you have a link to your channel?

Do you have the option enable to customize your channel? There is a little Gear in that top section of your channel, if you click on it, it will bring up some channel settings.


The "what to watch next" will only appear to returning subscribers, if you do not have a featured video selected. If a featured video is selected, they will see that video and not a what to watch next section.
If a visitor to your channel is not a subscriber they will see your channel trailer. There are little pencil icons on the right hand side of both the New Visitors and Returning Subscribers modules in which you can change the featured video or channel trailer.

There is also a "view as" option towards the top of your channel near your channel name that allows you to view the channel as though you were either a returning subscriber or new visitor. This will give you an idea of how it looks to others.

Yes the option is enabled, however, even while I have it selected to view as a returning subscriber it still only shows up in the row. I don't want to select a featured video or a channel trailer, I simply wanted to have the one large video displayed with three videos along it's side, like the image above from ThatcherJoe's channel.

The image shows the subscriber view. That will only be shown to returning subscribers.
For new visitors they will only see the channel trailer. You would need to select one video for it to appear to new visitors. They will not see a "What to watch next" until they subscribe.

If I am not subscribed to your channel I don't see the channel trailer if you haven't selected one.



Once I subscribe to your channel, I see your "what to watch next":

Ohhh okay! Thank you, you've been a lovely help. For some reason when I simply selected the button to view my channel as a subscriber it didn't show up, but now that you've told me I feel better about it, thank you!!
