The Day In Online Video News And Views 3rd December 2013

Alabama law firm McCutcheon and Hamner may or may not have released a video that may or may not be in terrifically bad taste and the whole thing is still on YouTube for everyone to enjoy! Confused? You will be. The video in question, uploaded to the Definitive Television channel, features the worst kind of racial stereotyping but the law firm say it has nothing to do with them and that they never hired nor have even heard of Definitive Television. Unsurprisingly, comments have been disabled and McCutcheon and Hamner are taking legal action.

Netflix's first original animated series, Turbo, gets it premiere on Christmas Eve but there's no bingefest available for viewers as they are only releasing the first five episodes. Boo. These and other stories from the world of video and cable in the past 24 hours.
