YouTube’s New Channel Design Rolls Out to Everyone on June 5th
[ Technology]

If you’ve spent some time on YouTube recently, you may have noticed that not every channel you land on looks the same. Some channels sport a new look that features a large header photo, social links, and a new design that reorganizes videos by category.

This new design is called the YouTube One Channel, and YouTube has had it in beta for some time now. In that time, over 100 million channels have opted-in to the new look. But for all of you holdouts, your days with the old channel format are numbered. YouTube has just announced that all channels with be automatically and permanently moved to the new One Channel design by June 5th.

“Channels that have already made the switch are experiencing several benefits. Their branding shines through in more places because Channel Art is visible on iOS apps, Android apps and TV. For the channels that have opted in, we’ve seen 20% more page views on their channels because clicks from the YouTube guide go directly to their channel pages instead of to their activity feeds,” says YouTube

Here’s what the new channels look like:

Compare that to the old channels, which will no longer exist come June 5th:

Of course, if you’re a channel owner and you’re just now hearing about this – you can choose to opt-in early here.

And speaking of YouTube and channels, the company just expanded live streaming to any and all channels with 1000+ subscribers.

    hate the one channel design

    I think the new channel design is nasty. Can have a background, and its twice as confusing as the old one. All you get is some crappy small box to put a picture. I have no idea why they would make us all use it. I think it should remain optional. I talked to alot of poeple and well we all hate the design. Its nowhere my problem that they need a design for ipod and phones…

    Why? Why would YT want to change to this ugly design, is there something wrong with them? They don’t listen to the public view at all, everyone that I talked to said that they don’t like this motherf***ing ugly design. It looks like a f***ing toilet for christ sakes, don’t change it, don’t you see your making a huge mistake by changing everyone’s design to this one channel nasty.. nasty design. All I got to say is either let people choose between the two or delete motherf***ing YT now, because my ass ain’t staying once you change to the new design and I think a lot of other asses won’t be hanging around for long. So please you motherf***ing c**ks**kers don’t change to the new design. If you do you might as well shut YT down.

  • Adam

    YT ain’t got the balls to change Chuck Norris’s design, coz only Chuck Norris himself can change his YT design.

  • Joshua Belcher

    YouTube can eat my ass, I hate this mandatory switching of the layouts every fucking year…

    Set it one way, then leave it the hell alone already, right when we start getting comfortable, you switch the shit on us AGAIN

  • jimbo

    The old design felt like it was your own personal channel where only your vids show unless you notify the ones you “liked” to your subs but now its just an open format with doesnt split you apart from other channels accept from the fucking header that looks out of place.

    theAMAZINGcool perused this thread !!

    Not being a fan of the new YouTube changes I hope YouTube would allow you to decide what you want. A simple interface isn’t as nice as options. Maybe complains will change YouTube thinking

  • liz

    THis new design is so generic and uninteresting. I can actually see that my viewershiop has DROPPED in the week we were forced to adopt this new, very vanilla format. Maybe that is the reason they did it – to SLOW DOWN traffic for their servers. I bet it is working! Yechh!
