It appears that YouTube.com/shows does not have a mobile version of the site.  If you change your Browser Config to Firefox or IE, does it work then?

the youtube experience on my Storm was atrocious.  Lousy video quality (not the phone's fault, but a bandwidth issue).  If I want to watch fluid and clear youtube videos (mostly music videos) I use my Touch on wifi.  Once you have seen how good YT video can look on other portable devices, you'll quickly lose enthusiasm for bothering to view them on a Storm.  And that's a real shame, because the Storm's screen is far better than the Touch when it comes to contrast and color.  I placed some movie files on my Storm and they look fantastic.  Couple that with the loud speaker (compared to the wimpy Touch speaker) and you've got yourself a great little movie player.

Not a very good choice of shows.

I just install it on my pc and it will stream to my BB.

Re: YouTube Adds TV Shows, Movies!!!

Is there any way to watch full show episodes or movies that doesn't require downloading something to a PC? I don't have a personal computer...just the BB Storm. Thanks! Smiley Happy

J, I think of it more as "relative" rather than simply personal preference.  IF you saw better performance from a youtube app on another device, you would throw rocks at the youtube/BB function.  It's not in the same ballpark.  The screen however, is far nicer than that of a Touch or iPhone.  The youtube videos streaming over the Verizon network are HORRID, and I am not exaggerating.  I bandwidth issue, obviously, just like the issue with Pandora on the BB.  It is a pale imitation of Pandora on the Touch, over wifi.  A Pandora rep even TOLD me that the day the app hit, in a personal email to me.  It's not like I am making this stuff up.  There's only so much quality that we can get over the EVDO and it sure doesn't rival the media experience over a fast wifi connection.  For $60 a month for the data plan for phones for me and my wife, I was not a happy camper seeing the limitations in quality of streaming media and the internet which is painful to browse via the phone.  I knew going in, it would be slower than wifi, but I had no idea just how long pages would take to load.
