Ontario broadcaster will have channel on the site

TORONTO -- Ontario's public educational broadcaster, TVO, on Thursday struck a deal with YouTube to stream its TV shows online.

As part of their agreement, TV will have its own YouTube channel to feature shows such as the interactive family channel "Your Voice" and the flagship newscast "The Agenda With Steve Paikin."

YouTube and TVO will share advertising revenue from the branded online channel.

TVO already had distribution arrangements with Yahoo! Canada and Joost.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corp., the country's public broadcaster, last year launched its own authorized hub channel on YouTube.
