Default NBC Breaks Off With YouTube

From our front-page news:
Considering that NBC broke up with Apple early last month, it should be no surprise that they've also just broken up with YouTube. But, it's hard to put the blame at them since they are going to be launching their own online video site shortly, which is supposed to house completely free ad-supported videos. At least they are not breaking off with YouTube simply to begin charging folks.

The new site is set to launch sometime this month, and with Halloween quickly approaching, and this news, it would seem safe to say that the beta will be launching any day now. YouTube has a lot to be thankful towards NBC with as many people credit this nod from a large media company with finally adding credibility to the video site. And also, possibly, what led to their buyout by Google.
