What is YouTube and what is a YouTube channel?

A personal YouTube channel is available to everyone who joins YouTube as a member. The channel is used as the home page for the user’s account.
After the user enters and approves the information, the channel will display the account name, a personal description, public videos uploaded by the member, and any user information entered by the member.
If you are a YouTube member, you can customize the background and color scheme of your personal channel and control certain information displayed on it.
Businesses can also have channels. These channels are different from personal channels because they can have multiple owners or managers. YouTube members can open new business channels using their branded accounts.
How to set up a personal YouTube channel
Anyone can view YouTube without an account. however, if you intend to upload videos, add comments or make playlists, you will need to create a YouTube channel (free). Here’s how.
Sign in to YouTube with your Google account.
Try any action that requires a channel, such as uploading a video.
At this point, you will be prompted to create a channel (if one has not already been created).
Review the information displayed, including your account name and image, and confirm that it is correct to create your channel.
YouTube accounts use the same login information as Google accounts, which means it’s easier to create a YouTube channel if you already have a Google account. If you use other Google services (e.g. Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Albums, Google Cloud Drive, etc.), you can open a YouTube channel without signing up for a new Google account.
