Alert: YouTube, Watch Your Back!

Well it was bound to happen. Remember around WGA Strike time, there was all this talk about the television companies complaining that the internet was the wild west, and it was undeveloped fiscal territory. And no one was making any money, we are so poor... blah, blah, blah.

Well, NBC Universal finally unveiled their proverbial toe dipped into the pond of online video services with So, today, I went over and checked out a few videos... Mostly old SNL clips. And I have to say, all cynicism aside, if you want to watch television shows online (and you limit your selection to Fox and NBC shows) and you do not mind all the commericals... yes, there are commercials... then you will like this website. Yes, there are commercials, but the clarity of the videos is really quite fantastic, and the navigation around the site is pretty swift and user friendly. So, only time will tell, if this service makes an impact to YouTube, but it is a very good start.
