    Arrow YouTube has taken a significant step toward a UK TV VOD portal




    YouTube has taken a significant step toward a UK TV VOD portal with a new section called UK TV and featuring full length TV shows from its deal with Channel 4 and others from US broadcasters.

    YouTube is posting around 5,000 videos, of which almost 4,000 are full-length programmes, from more than 60 partners. YouTube said it "expects this to significantly increase in the coming months."

    It is presumed Google, parent of YouTube, is keen to steal a march on Hulu before it launches in the UK and SeeSaw, the Arquiva owned resurrection of Project Kangaroo. All will be competing to acquire online rights to broadcaster output.

    The full length programming available today , Thursday November 19, includes the first set of content made available under the recently announced partnership between Channel 4 and YouTube.
