image thumb4 YouTube working hard to Sign Deals with TV Networks

Google is pretty busy, communicating with television networks in a bid to have them stream shows on YouTube. The plan is to stream content on the online video juggernaut pricing each at $1.99. Good enough and it would actually do good with only one drawback that you will not be able to download these. And that is quite a drawback to begin with, I mean why in the world should I pay a subscription fee only to have them stream online when I can readily have them downloaded at the same price?

YouTube made a major announcement today as it partnered with the popular Spanish language network in the US, Univision. This partnership would enable YouTube to host content from Univision on its site. This would include not only clips but complete content as well.

YouTube has come of age, growing into the leading online video portal to being the second most popular search engine, following its parent company Google, when it comes to search queries. The video portal has revamped its appearance quite a lot a sit moved its search box a bit away from the center, where it’s usually found.

To be honest the new page looks much better without all the grey it used to have in the masthead. While this might appear quite a little update, but it will have major affect on how each user uses the site, I am pointing at the greater number of search requests on the site with a ore prominent search box.

It released another feature that would help push such videos via YouTube Promoted Video campaigns, which will now appear right on the page of the video being watched. Is that something close to AdSense for YouTube? The idea behind this is to make sure that its partners benefit the most by boosting the revenue each can generate. To be honest this one has no doubts attached, with this kind of promotion right on the page you are watching the video is bound to have a very positive impact on revenue generation.
