After ABS-CBN was blocked from attaining a congressional franchise to operate on broadcast television, the network’s news channel migrated to YouTube, Facebook, and other platforms to publish its reports and coverages.

However, as of November 3, ABS-CBN News was “terminated” from YouTube due to alleged violations of YouTube’s Terms of Service. As early as 7 a.m., it was first noticed by netizens who spread the news of ABS-CBN off YouTube on Twitter.

There is no update as to what violation occurred.

Prior to this, ABS-CBN’s News uploaded its regional coverage of Super Typhoon Rolly on its YouTube channel, where many streamed the content to stay updated on the typhoon.
