Demand Five now available on YouTube!

Premium content on YouTube has once again expanded from its previous offering. YouTube now have UK broadcaster 'Five' on board and its shows are now available to stream. Popular shows include Neighbours so viewers can now watch Neighbours for free online. Neighbours has no ads at the moment which makes the service even better than Demand Five.

Five has joined BBC Worldwide and Channel 4 in offering full length shows. ITV still only offers clips of a very limited number of shows and the BBC has many shows which are still clip-only.

Cable TV provider Sky may soon offer some of its shows on YouTube although this is unlikely as this would only reduce the number of subscribers - it is testing its own service Sky Player which offers several programmes to stream and streams too, it is also available on the XBOX 360 and Windows Media Center.

Hulu UK launch date?
US giant Hulu is still attempting to launch its service in the UK and is expected to do so in early 2010 - this service may have US programmes as well as UK though it is unlikely that the BBC will get on board as most of its programmes are exclusive to its iPlayer service.
