YouTube to Launch ‘Channels’ That Are Like TV Channels

Our favorite Internet place for watching the stars of tomorrow and the stars of yesterday is reportedly preparing to launch at least a dozen new channels in 2012. Unlike Vevo and other existing "channels" that offer whatever unscheduled clips, these new channels will be just like TV channels, with scheduled programs and, one hopes, seemingly endless commercial breaks. Apparently Google, which owns YouTube, wants to pull folks away from their televisions and toward their computer screens? As long as people are staring at some kind of screen, everything will be okay.

It's going to take a few years for this to properly develop I suppose but it's very cool all the same. I'll have to check it out whenever this is finished.

Well, if that's the case, then Google's job is partially done, since I don't watch TV at all anymore.
