BBC Puts ‘Sherlock’ Mini-Episode on YouTube Ahead of Series Three

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman and created by Steven Moffat, “Sherlock” is one of the most popular shows on BBC. It’s returning for a third series on January 1, after a two-year wait. (I don’t want to spoil anything for you if you haven’t seen it yet, but the end of the second series made the show’s eventual return a highly anticipated one.)

Fullscreen: At the Forefront of YouTube

When, in July 2013, Chernin Group, Comcast, and WPP invested a reported $30 million in multi-channel network Fullscreen, it wasn’t just a sign of traditional media’s interest in YouTube — Fullscreen indicated its goal of becoming a “global media company.” But what’s actually resulted is the redefinition of a media company in the YouTube space — and it’s why we’ve chosen Fullscreen as the MCN of 2013.
