Top Gear channel launches on YouTube

Top Gear is easily the most popular car show in the world, and one of the most popular shows altogether. But since it doesn't reach every corner the globe, the daily miracle that is the internet fills in the gaps. The BBC's approach to the online airing of Top Gear episodes has been an ongoing saga, with the company initially ordering YouTube to take them down, then putting the episodes on their own site before striking a deal with YouTube to allow episodes to be shown on the popular online video portal. The latest chapter in the saga now has Top Gear launching its own YouTube channel, which has now gone live. The channel features a vast library of Top Gear segments, including car reviews celebrity interviews and of course the famous epic challenges. All in all some 30 new clips have been added, and the channel will also host viewer competitions for prizes and whatnot. The new channel could potentially also host episodes of the American and upcoming Australian versions of the series as well, but we'll have to wait and see on that one.

Top Gear is by far one of the best shows on TV, and the interesting part is that people who are not normally 'petrol heads' (as they say on the show), really like it. My Wife and Daughter both love the show, and they are not really into cars that much. It proves that a television show can have a main topic (cars) that you would think only appeals to a select demographic, but by making it entertaining, you can pull in LOTS of other people.
