Two internet TV stories in one day, whodathunkit? Channel 4 in the UK have announced that they’re going to start putting all their content on YouTube. That’s got to be some kind of coup for YouTube as Channel 4 is actually a public service broadcaster, it’s also a good thing for UK internet users in general as YouTube’s dominance makes it a good distribution mechanism.
Cnet is reporting that Channel 4 aim to have a huge amount of their back catalogue on line by 2010, which in turn is a huge amount of TV.
It doesn’t look like the content will work outside the UK, without the usual VPN malarkey. There’s no mention of 4oD, Channel 4’s on demand service going away, but it’s safe to assume that it will – so time for another TunerFree update then Martin!
