Google gives YouTube a make over

Written by Nick Farell

Will spend a $100 million
Search engine outfit Google is spending $100 million to improve its YouTube site. The plan is to populate the site with its own low-budget original programmes, made specifically for the web.

According to the Wall Street Journal the site will commission low-cost content designed exclusively for the web. The plan is to have a set of "channels" around topics such as arts and sports. About 20 or so of those channels will feature several hours of professionally produced original programming a week.

It is unclear when the site will start investing in content but sources say its executives have already visited the top Hollywood talent agencies in search of ideas and will work with professional production companies to create the shows.

Hopefully all this fixes the searches on youtube. It seems as if you need to put the exact title of the video into the search bar to find the vid you looking for.

Could this sub title be ANY more misleading?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Leave the damn site alone! Everything they do makes it worse, and this will finally put the nail in the coffin, I bet. We need a new YouTube. If this is as horrible as I'm sure it will be, I'm never bothering with anything from Google again.

I hope they fix the damn suggestions. It has always happened to me that I'm watching the first part of something and in the suggestions I find part 3 or part 4 but not the freaking part 2.

i know imay sound CRAZY, but youtube has a chance to beat netflix.
now heres the reasone why, it has over 100 million registerd user around the world that they watch youtube everyday (me included),that meens some of them are willing to pay money to watch exclusive content like movies and tv shows.
and if they do make it happen iam willing to jump all over it :)
