FAIL: YouTube Britains Got Talent Licensing.

Posted by danblog on May 2, 2009 in Humor and funny crap!, Ranting, YouTube |

I was checking out the shows on YouTube now to see if they had any others since i last looked, and i immediately see Britain’s got Talent…

I live in Britain. This is a British show. Shown on British TV. Why the F#!? isn’t it available on YouTube in Britain… I mean come on! Are you Sh!ttin’ me?!youtube_britains_got_talent_licensing_fail-550

And yes… I am submitting this to Fail Blog.

So much for me watching Susan Boyle again and again… guess will have to just watch all the clips uploaded without permission of the show eh… instead of the version which YouTube can put specially targeted high quality high return ads on.

Well done YouTube. Nice one.

    Your point is what? Your failure to be British, UTube? It’s unintelligible writing?

    I have a good point in my mind thank you.

    I am British (so not quite sure how I would fail at that, its not exactly something you achieve… it just is)…

    The show is British, its called “Britain’s” got Talent, and yet because of licensing the people of Britain can’t watch YouTube content of the show… and yet American can.

    I simply miss the logic, British show, Made in Britain, about Britain, For Britain… and yet they wont license it to Britain. I mean seriously?

    The whole point of YouTube putting shows and movies etc. on to their site was so they could try and raise much needed ad revenue from advertisers who prefer to advertise with “premium” content, but instead the UK has to watch the clips of Susan Boyle surprising the nation instead on normal channels which do NOT carry ANY adverts (and there for only COST YouTube money) which were uploaded by normal users, there-fore meaning both YouTube and the content creators… FremantleMedia Ltd, Simco Ltd, talkbackTHAMES, SyCo Tv and ITV cannot benefit from the content.

    If you can explain the logic to me, please do I am happy to hear it.

    Thanks for your comment 😉
