I see how to target a specific video on YouTube, but not how to target a whole channel.

How do I do that?

Hi Hashim,

1- In the placement box click "Search for suggestion" tab,
2- Type the name of the channel you would like to target,
3- Choose the channel from the suggested results by clicking the "Add" button beside the channel's name.

This feature is currently broken and trying to add a placement will function as a "or" statement as opposed to an "&" statement. So if you target all ages and genders and enter a placement , google interprets this as "target any age & gender OR this placement" instead of how it should be which is "target any age & gender AND on this placement."

Anyone found any workaround to resolve this?
