It's funny that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) also fell for the April Fools' prank when they aired the story on the CBC News Network channel earlier today. I immediately facepalmed.

If half the time it doesn't load then the problem is on your end. I almost never have problems loading a video on the tube.

From time to time I also have issues with YouTube failing to load videos or fails to buffer half way. However, not half the time as tsunami231 suggests but from time to time.

I KNEW this was an April fools joke, it just HAD to be.

No way youtube will suddenly shut down. It's used by billions on a daily basis & is making mega money...

Pill has to come up with a better April fools joke.
