Under a new agreement with Time Warner, YouTube will show clips from CNN, Cartoon Network, TNT’s movies and dramas, Adult Swim animated shows and its television daytime talk shows such as Gossip Girl and Ellen DeGeneres.
The online video site will show “high-quality, short-form content” but not complete episodes of television shows or movies, according to a statement by Time Warner. Clips will include advertising, with time sold by Warner Brothers Entertainment and Turner Broadcasting System.
The new agreement expands on an existing relationship between Time Warner and YouTube. Time Warner’s HBO premium cable network currently uses the site to promote video clips from “True Blood,Hung, and Entourage in the US. CNN International has also made clips available on a country-restricted basis.
