YouTube announced on their blog yesterday that they plan on adding more well-known content creators to the video platform in the coming weeks. YouTube’s efforts are to make the website more like a TV network, bringing in well-known personalities from fields outside of the internet.
Today we’re announcing that even more talented creators and original entertainment will soon join YouTube’s existing channel lineup, including channels created by well-known personalities and content producers from the TV, film, music, news, and sports fields, as well as some of the most innovative up-and-coming media companies in the world and some of YouTube’s own existing partners. These channels will have something for everyone, whether you’re a mom, a comedy fan, a sports nut, a music lover or a pop-culture maven.
The channels YouTube hopes to provide will appeal to everyone, as they state above. YouTube says they’re doing this to “broaden their range of entertainment”. The new channels will be due out in the coming weeks.
