LONDON — YouTube is extending its original programming initiative to Europe, with at least 60 new video channels from media companies including Britain’s BBC, London-based FreemantleMedia and the Netherlands’ Endemol.
The Google Inc.-owned video site said Monday that the new channels, with content from Britain, Germany, France, and the U.S., will be in addition to the 100 channels launched in the U.S. last year. Like pre-existing American offerings, the European channels will have a mix of celebrity oriented, niche, and established programs.
