SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE Launches YouTube Channel but is Unavailable in U.S.

Broadway Video Entertainment's "Saturday Night Live" has finally set up its first official channel on YouTube. Unfortunately, the free clips and videos are not available to viewers inside the United States due to the production company's licensing pact with Yahoo for domestic auds.

The aim of the ad-free international Youtube channel is to drive viewership of the program on television-- "SNL" currently airs in 170 countries. The channel is set to launch with around 2,500 clips from the show's historic 38-year run. In the coming weeks, another 2,000 or so clips will we added online, including clips from this week's season premiere episode.

The majority of "SNL" content in the U.S. is available to stream only through Yahoo, which is using around 5,000 clips from the show to help launch its series of original comedies this month. However, the rights to full episodes still belong to NBC and Hulu.
