According to reports, YouTube and the BBC are working on a deal.
If true, I tend to agree with the writer’s analysis that older shows and clips packages would be made available in an effort to spur DVD sales and raise awareness of programmes. Anything that will get them away from their very dubious dealings with Microsoft has to be a good thing.
A YouTube / BBC deal would make a lot of sense with the BBC’s current push into commercial areas that sidestep the restrictions they have on doing overtly commercial ventures in the UK.
Be interesting to see how this one pans out. Original report here.
