Beginning the conversion of remaining channels

Thursday, October 15, 2009 | 8:00 AM

Over the past few months we've been hard at work redesigning our brand channel layout and many partners and advertisers have already opted into, and taken advantage of, this new design. Today we're beginning the process of converting all remaining partner and advertiser channels still using the older platform to the new one. Note that this migration could take up to two weeks to complete and that the branding options you've selected on the old channel layout will be ported over to the new layout automatically. Here's an example of what the new channel design looks like:

Once again, your comments and feedback have been instrumental in helping the new version evolve and grow (you can see a list of items we addressed here). Now customizing and editing your channel is a lot easier, with plenty of options for organizing videos. The new channel design also refocuses attention on engaging with you and your videos, which, after all, is the centerpiece of any YouTube experience. And we've got a lot of great ideas and input from you on things you'd like to see next.
