Wait YouTube is the NFL signing a partnership with YouTube and even getting its own channel? ”There is no more valuable property in television than the National Football League, and there is no bigger video hub on the Internet than YouTube. Now, the two have agreed to join forces to take over the world – or something like that” Says entertainment today. This will increase users on YouTube and even fans of the NFL. Joining these two hubs together will make it easier to access highlights, plays, and bad calls. ;)
“The NFL has announced a partnership with Google that will give the league something of a preferred status on the world’s most powerful search engine. Users that search, for instance, “Ravens Steelers” into their Google search box will be taken to game highlights on the NFL’s official YouTube channel. This allows the league to take the driver’s seat in terms of its own copyrighted content being posted on YouTube, and gives fans a reliable source to find highlights on YouTube – rather than waiting for “steelersfan1997″ to post highlights” Continues entertainment today. American football is going more global then it ever has before, everyone in the world can access google, every smart phone, every computer. IT’S TAKING OVERRRRRR.
“The new partnership will also allow the NFL to share in ad revenue that Google generates on YouTube videos. Google has also agreed to promote the NFL on YouTube and elsewhere, and provide expanded search results on the all-important Google search bar.” The Promo alone is worth this deal, but no they’re also making big bucks off it too. This is in my opinion the smartest move the NFL could ever make especially right before Super Bowl.
“The new partnership makes the NFL the most accessible entity in American entertainment today. The league now has partnerships with Disney (ESPN), NewsCorp (Fox), Viacom (CBS), Comcast (NBC) and Google. It doesn’t get any bigger than that.” So basically football is taking over the world, and YouTube isn’t the start or the finish but a major mile stone. Why did they sign with Disney? Are they going to have Richard Sherman cussing out some fourth grader and the jumping on a trampoline drawing mouse ears into the sky...? I think not.
