Music Television Lives - But It's On Demand Now


MTV may have killed off "music television", but music videos are as popular as ever - possibly more popular than ever.

According to a survey of US Internet users by social media analytics firm Sysomos, music is, by far, the most popular category of videos on YouTube.

The top categories of videos are:

  1. Music - 31%
  2. Entertainment - 15%
  3. People and Blogs - 11%
  4. News and Politics - 7%
  5. Sport - 6%

Music is more than twice as popular as the next category, entertainment.

And, given YouTube's popularity (it's the #3 site in the world), it suggests that music videos are as important as ever.

YouTube is the best oldies channel EVER (however, one defines oldies be they the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's or now the 00's (nougties?). Somebody ought to come up with a series of really retro homemade videos for songs all the way back into the mists of musical time.
