YouTube reportedly testing ad supported TV content/hub

Like several other services, it looks like Google is planning on launching an ad-supported no charge collection of streaming channels according to the Wall Street Journal. I won’t say free, because it’s not, but you know how fast and loose people play with that word.

This would join services like Tubi, Roku, Pluto, Plex’s offerings, Freevee, Crackle, and a host of others.

It’s a pretty heavily saturated market, but the bar to entry is fairly low (unless we’re talking limbo rules in which case the bar is set pretty high.)

Hopefully the YouTube/Google controlled advertising network for their new venture will be a bit smarter than some ad networks I’ve observed that think showing you the same commercial three times in a row every eight minutes is going to get you to respond favorably.

It’s probably coming, it’s been done before, hopefully Google will do it better by giving somewhat relevant advertising.

Pocketables does not accept targeted advertising, phony guest posts, paid reviews, etc. Help us keep this way with support on Patreon!
