YouTube takes on TV with launch of 60 new channels | Media | guardian.co.uk

YouTube has stepped up its assault on traditional TV by launching 60 new channels featuring broadcast-quality content made by top producers.

The Google-owned video website has linked up with media companies including Hat Trick, All3Media and ITN for the UK channels, which include the Jamie Oliver Food Channel, BBC Worldwide's On Earth and Mixmag TV.
