Official Artist Channel



OAC stands for Official Artist Channel.

YouTube has created this concept to link users' accounts so they are under one channel.

For example - instead of having an official channel, a separate YouTube Music artist channel, and a Vevo channel appearing in a search, users will now only see the Official Artist Channel.



How do I get an OAC? 

If you already have a YouTube channel and at least 3 official music videos, please submit a help request from your account under Help  Submit Help Request to create your OAC. If you have a Vevo channel, Symphonic can connect it to your OAC.


Will Vevo videos be visible on my OAC channel? 

Yes, if you see any missing videos, feel free to submit a help request with us. 


When a Vevo video goes live, do users get a notification if they are only subscribed to the OAC channel?

Yes, as long as your YouTube and Vevo channels are linked, your subscribers will receive a notification that your Vevo video is live.


I've delivered a video to my OAC, will this also appear on my Vevo channel?

No, the video will only appear on your OAC. In order for the video to appear on both channels, you will need to request for the video to be moved. You may submit a Help Request from your account under Help ► Submit Help Request.


You can read more information about Official Artist Channels on YouTube's Support page.
