YouTube adds old Movies and TV

Google has now added Movies and TV Shows to YouTube. Oh but wait its mostly just a easy way to find the TV shows that have already been around on YouTube and old movies you probably have no desire to watch. Oh but it gets better. Remember those shows that were licensed for YouTube but had no commercials well now your get a wonderful commercial before and after the video. So what is Google exactly trying to do here? Is it trying to compete with Hulu? With this small amount of content that is mostly sub-par compared to the prime-time content. Google does not stand a chance at beating out Hulu. Not only that but this is pissing off more and more people since most people that use YouTube want it to remain just a site for people to upload their own content. It’s in the name YouTube its about You not about the content providers! If only Google could realize this. In reality Google should have kept Google Video alive if for nothing more then as a way to add this content without messing with the YouTube name.
