Viewers told to stream via TeleRadyo for now

ABS-CBN News is aware of the problem and is working closely with the YouTube team. Here's a copy of the official statement they have released:

We are aware of the problem of accessing ABS-CBN News channels on YouTube. We are currently investigating this and working closely with YouTube to resolve the problem. In the meantime, you can catch our livestreams and news reports on the TeleRadyo Channel. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

As of writing, a quick check on the ABS-CBN News' website articles with their YouTube video embeds show this notice:
"Video unavailable" on ABS-CBN News Online's YouTube video embeds

Note that both ABS-CBN News and ABS-CBN News Channel YouTube accounts are down. On August 16, ABS-CBN News registered 10 million subscribers on the platform.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN Entertainment YouTube channel, the first Filipino YouTube account to have reached 30 million subscribers, is accessible along with other ABS-CBN owned YouTube channels. Viewers may also opt to watch TV Patrol in today's Kapamilya Online Live Livestream via this channel later today.

It was on May 05, 2020, when ABS-CBN was forced to go off air as its franchise expired. Lawmakers also denied the Kapamilya network's bid for a fresh franchise on July 10, 2020.

UPDATE: As of 4:28PM, ABS-CBN News' YouTube Channel is accessible again.
