It's strange that Packed Lunch doesn't have a YouTube page.

Since when was it a requirement to have a YouTube page?

There isn't but having segments and interviews on YouTube would help viewers to the show.

That should be the least of that production's worries!

Only if you have a decent viewer base in the first place to send them there. Otherwise you might as well not bother.
A turd cannot be polished after all, as the saying goes.

Not really, I never watch watch any ITV daytime shows on TV. But I’ll quite often watch bits on YouTube. It’s free publicity for the show really and may increase awareness and people may decide to give the show a try as a result.

Exactly, think of how many This Morning clips go viral.

I don’t really understand this comment. This kind of activity is about growing an audience using the content and getting people to watch and engage with it. That could be an end in itself (monetisation) or, more likely in this case, directing them to other places such as the show itself.

Of course there’s no audience there now, they don’t have a channel. I do think it’s unusual for a daily magazine show in 2021 to not have that kind of presence.

You only need to look at Good Morning Britain to see the power of social media.
Half of their segments (especially on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays with Piers at the helm) seem to be put together exclusively to try and find that day's 'viral moment' to be snipped out and posted all over their Twitter and YouTube pages in order to generate clicks and interest in the show.
In this day and age, a solid social media presence is an easy way of generating hubbub and (theoretically) greater viewership down the line, and you'd think Steph's Packed Lunch would want to capitalise on this as much as possible.

The editor of This Morning mentioned in an interview that they look at social media as well as linear ratings and I imagine that's true for GMB and Loose Women. Packed Lunch has presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so it's not like they have shunned social platforms.

It looks like they've already blocked your video Johnr. Very quick it seems.


A lot of YouTube blocks are automatic. It can do things like scan a third party websites database (I.E. in this case All4) for videos and block them if YouTube is asked too.

Since the early days of YouTube, I find that Channel 4 have always been the most proactive in blocking any copyrighted footage that gets uploaded. Compare that to some BBC shows where extended clips - from unofficial channels - and full episodes seem to be freely available.
