My local TV providers - YouTube and Apple!

A the D5 conference last week, Steve Jobs announced that AppleTV will soon release a plug-in to view YouTube videos on your AppleTV. My first thoughts were - big deal, who really cares. If I wasn't ready to plunk down $300-400 for a device that can play iTunes videos, adding little Johnny and Jane's foibles wasn't going to make an iota of difference.

But then today, the Boy Genius Report announced that YouTube is going to begin offering local TV. As I read this, I thought back to a post I made here, more than 3 years ago!

I can now buy an Apple TV, take it anywhere, and it has content on it, and can also access local TV! Its only a matter of time before people start to realize this, and as local TV becomes more available on line.
