It’s been a long time since we’ve been this excited about an update to the site. But excited we are, and we hope your excitement will follow.

The World Page has been long overdue for an upgrade, but today it gets 3 major new features…

Search
Lightbox
Top YouTube Clips

Search

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the hardest, and SEARCH is a feature that many of you have been asking for, and one we’ve wanted to add since the beginning. Up until now it has not been possible to search WorldTV channels. All that has now changed.

Our new search engine is powered by Google, and searches all of the public channels of WorldTV in the blink of an eye. Super fast, super easy, just like you would expect from Google. Try out the new WorldTV Channel search

In the past, when you clicked on a channel on the World Page it would open in a pop-up window. We never really liked that very much. Starting today, videos on the World Page will open in a TV-style lightbox. You can navigate between the top channels without having to close the lightbox. Try it!

Top YouTube Clips

In addition to showing the Top WorldTV channels for a particular country, we now show the top YouTube clips as well. By clicking on the World map you can see the top YouTube clips for different countries. We’re doing this for 23 countries with more to come. By clicking on ‘World’ (the breadcrumb navigation at the top) you can see the top YouTube clips for the whole world.
