    "YouTube said it will begin showing full-length television programs in addition to its shorter video offerings to generate ad revenue.

    The Google Inc.-owned Web site said the deal is to begin with shows from CBS Corp., including "The Young and the Restless," "90210," "Dexter" and "Californication." YouTube said it is in discussions with other media partners"

    What part of 'generate ad revenue' isn't clear?

    The shows will be free, but ad supported.

    "Hoffner said that CBS will be selling it own advertising inventory via the new YouTube service.

    Google's move to present full-length shows on YouTube comes shortly after the company began a separate effort earlier this week to add shopping features to the service, by enabling users to click on links beneath videos to make related purchases. "

    Hulu is way better then YouTube, of course, but I do not believe that Hulu is available for the iPhone. If it was, then that would be awesome.
