How to Enjoy Flash Video on Windows Phone

During my recent holiday I had some spare time and tried to find something interesting to watch on my Windows Phone.

Hate YouTube’s New Layout? Try Out YouTube TV Instead

Enjoy a streamlined version of YouTube that’s usable from your couch and lets you follow the channels you love, easily.

And you don’t need to be using a TV to use it – YouTube TV works great in your HTML5 compliant browser of choice.
