NBC Cuts Off YouTube

By Deane Barker on October 21, 2007

NBC pulls YouTube channel: This really, really sucks. There were a lot of Monday mornings around here where we would replay the latest Digital Short.

[…] the relationship had run its course. NBC got buzz for a revived Saturday Night Live and The Office, and YouTube, through the sheen of legitimacy NBC gave it, got a $1.65 billion buyout. With NBC set to launch its own video site, the laughably named Hulu, the pulling of the YouTube plug was just a matter of time.

Hulu? Why re-invent the wheel? Good job, NBC, for bagging something that works. Good to know you’re not just stupid when it comes to iTunes, but that your stupidity spreads far and wide.
