YouTube Premieres / Avatars and AdWords Outage


We've now resolved the incident. Thanks for your patience.


We've implemented a fix and have been monitoring closely. While it appears the underlying issue has been corrected, we are working on long-term solutions to avoid further issues. Additionally, Content Operations are continuing to monitor YouTube Premieres.

Regarding YouTube Premieres, Vevo Content Operations will be able to manually action these requests. However, because these must now be done manually, requests must be for times within business hours (4a-9pET). Requests outside these hours will be rejected.

Regarding Avatars and AdWords updates, we are not able to manually action these requests at this time. We are updating our processes to accommodate requests and will update our support site with details accordingly, once available.

Any additional questions, please contact
