The Week In Video: Mothers Day, David Bowie And Live Pizza Action

So this is the week that YouTube finally announced they were introducing a paywall for certain channels after months if not years of hearsay.

In other news, David Bowie got some much needed publicity for his new single and Yahoo sniff around Hulu after their Dailymotion deal falls through. Happy Mother's Day!

YouTube Bans New Bowie Video 'By Mistake'

David Bowie's new video for 'The Next Day' is streaming again on YouTube after being banned by the site for contravening their T&Cs regarding graphic content. However, it was an honest mistake YouTube told Billboard magazine:

The music promo, which features cameos from Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard features Bowie playing a Christ like figure, has drawn criticism from the Church of England and The Catholic League. You can watch the video here for yourselves - complete with its new 'Explicit' warning.
