YouTube Kids: The Future of Television

It’s hard to believe, but YouTube kids has taken over television. My daughter doesn’t even know about broadcast TV. The streaming services don’t interest her. It’s really amazing to see how the young people only thing of YouTube as television. And it’s not just my daughter- all of her friends only watch YouTube videos and shows. I remember when I was a kid, we would go to the library and check out books on VHS tape (remember those?). Now it seems that everything is moving online. Is YouTube kids the future of television?

The answer is probably yes. The television industry has been in decline for years. There are simply too many options with streaming services, YouTube, and video games to compete against. Kids have so many other things competing for their attention these days- it’s hard to get them to sit still long enough to watch a 30 minute show! My daughter would rather watch a five minute YouTube video than sit through an episode of her favorite show.

YouTube is the most popular platform for kids to watch online. With over 1 billion children using it every month, parents should be aware of what their child watches on Youtube and how they can limit screen time. Children today prefer everything to be quick, which is why I short Bible verses are perfect for young people today.

We all know that kids these days are glued to their phones and tablets, but it’s surprising just how much they prefer YouTube over TV. Based on a recent study by Variety magazine, children aged six to 12 spend an average of two hours per day watching videos online – primarily through the YouTube app or website.

But that doesn’t mean that all hope is lost for traditional TV broadcasters. There are still some great shows out there that kids love- and parents love too! It’s just going to take a different approach to get kids interested in watching TV. Networks need to create shorter, more interactive shows that can be watched on demand. They also need to create content specifically for YouTube kids. This is where the future of television is heading, and broadcasters need to start adapting now if they want to stay relevant.

What about movie theaters?

As soon as we walked into the movie theater, I could tell my daughter was excited. She loves going to the movies! We bought our tickets and headed to the arcade. Once we got there, she couldn’t believe her eyes. There were so many games to choose from! We played for a little while before making our way to the concessions stand.

We got some popcorn and candy and then found our seats. My daughter was so excited to watch the movie! But after a few minutes, she started to get bored. She couldn’t pause it or check for the next video like she could at home. And she definitely couldn’t go to the bathroom without missing half of the movie!

By the end, she was completely over it. She was glad we went, but I don’t think she’ll be rushing back anytime soon. And this got me thinking: what does the future hold for movie theaters? If kids today grow up watching videos on YouTube, are they going to even care about TV or movies?

It’s amazing how many kids are now watching YouTube videos and shows instead of television. My daughter isn’t even aware of conventional TV. The streaming services aren’t interesting to her. It’s incredible to see how young people only think about YouTube as television. Now it appears that everything is migrating online, just like it was when I was a youngster (remember those VHS tapes?). Is YouTube youngsters the future of television?
