Chances are that if you are searching for a video, one of the top ten links that show up first will be a YouTube clip. Founded as a video distribution platform for people to connect and share ideas and content, in the spring of 2005, YouTube has become the most popular online hub for videos.
Like many tech companies, YouTube was started in a garage and rapidly gained traction in its first year. Google wound up buying this online video platform start-up in 2006 for $1.65 billion - that’s 1 year after its start. Shortly after that, YouTube enhanced its design and integrated HD videos while broadening its international reach to 9 different countries.
In 2009, viewers were able to watch the TV shows they missed on Demand through Catch-up TV on YouTube. This online video platform has been a game changer for television and media, and for the car enthusiast, this is a treasure. You are now able to narrow your video searches to a category and uncover hundreds to thousands of channels that are tailored to your choosing.
