Channel 4 Going to YouTube

channel4Google [GOOG] have announced that their YouTube service will now be showing full length shows from Channel 4 in the UK.

The service will allow users to watch Channel 4 shows in full and free-of-charge as well as being on demand.

The service should be launching in 2010 and by that point a full catalogue of catch-up TV should be available along with a mixture of about 3000 hours of programs already broadcast. The programs include Skins, Brass Eye, Teachers and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares.

Although not earth shattering news, it’s still cool that you’ll be able to catch up with shows while working away on your laptop or PC. As the shows are official I expect they will be uploaded in HD too making it good to watch online.
