Google have today announced the launch of their YouTube service on the freesat platform, in a first for British TV. By the end of next month, customers of the freesat satellite television platform will be able to flick to the YouTube online video site on the main programming guide, instead of having to link up their television sets to the internet or watch YouTube on a computer.

The deal will help to boost YouTube, which last year launched 60 broadcast-style channels featuring programmes by some of the UK’s most respected production companies, including BBC Worldwide and Jamie Oliver’s Fresh One.
