Full Y&R Episodes on YouTube


YouTube, the largest video-sharing Web site, has started to run full-length TV shows from CBS's archive, in its latest step to boost advertising revenue by adding professional programming.

The site, owned by Google, said on Friday it was talking to other TV networks to sign similar deals to CBS. Many TV networks already run short clips on YouTube, which also offers millions of home videos uploaded by users.

You can now watch full episodes of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS on the CBS YouTube Channel. Until recently, you could only find occasional preview clips on the channel for all four CBS soaps.

The new partnership will put YouTube in more direct competition with Hulu, the online video site owned by News Corp. and General Electric's NBC Universal.

I hope that Bell Dramatic Serial and Sony are gonna make money from this as well.

But I do wonder how this will hurt Y&R's international audience, especially since YouTube isn't one of those places where only the US audience can see a certain video.

This must be why Sony has been pulling all the Y&R stuff recently. A bunch of Y&R clips on You Tube have disappeared and the message comes up that they were removed at the request of Sony or something like that.

There was some great stuff there in regards to Y&R and so much of it is gone now.

I noticed that a while back too, Steve. I had some of the Y&R clips marked to "favorites" and rarely downloaded scenes from You Tube. I DID find a small trove of good Y&R stuff still over there though. I guess Sony hasn't caught up with them yet. Now when I find clips that I really enjoy, I download them because I never know when they'll be pulled. I'll be happy if You Tube comes to some sort of agreement with BBC and ITV so I can see the UK soaps on a regular basis again. I don't live in or near Canada and every time a new way to view full episodes presented itself, the networks found them and pulled them. I wrote to ITV and BBC and while BBC is working on letting non-UK residents watch EE on their web site, ITV doesn't see it happening with their shows anytime soon. Both networks blamed the "pirated" material on You Tube.
