New Partner Roundup: SXSW, Backstreet Boys, and More

By David McMillan

From time to time, we’ll let you know about some of the new partners who’ve launched channels on YouTube. Additions in the last month include:

South by Southwest (SXSW), one of the premier music and film festivals in the country (the festival is later this month, so stay tuned to YouTube for content from Austin)

The Backstreet Boys, who've uploaded over 20 videos in their first month alone, including plenty of behind-the-scenes tour footage, which offers up-to-the-minute celebrity and entertainment news

epicfu, chictv, and TrendhunterTV, all of whom report on the latest trends in pop culture

geekentertainmenttv, iTouchiPodz, and TylersComputerShow for tech news -- the latter of these is a weekly show hosted by Tyler Plack, who's not even old enough to drive but is nonetheless extremely opinionated when it comes to the Mac vs. PC debate

• Australian comedienne Miss Cupcake and her fiveandahalfgirls channel, a faux vlog in which she plays, well, five and a half different personalities

TotalGermanShepherd: 100+ videos of German shepherds playing in the great outdoors

Check ’em out and let us know in the comments below which of these strike your fancy.
