YouTube will be launching a new food channel called Hungry this summer, in response to shifting consumer habits away from traditional network TV.
Hungry debuts July 2 at http://www.youtube.com/hungry.
Here's a preview of the channel line-up so far.
Set in hipster Brooklyn -- the Greenfield brothers face a culinary challenge in every episode, catering parties for local cult bands, food celebrities and neighborhood parties from their loft kitchen.
Hosted by a pair of best friends from Austin, these retro home cooks in vintage garb prepare classic comfort food recipes with a modern twist.
Hosted by online local guide Citysearch.com, this show takes viewers around hotspots known for local favorites and must-have dishes through the eyes of on-the-ground bloggers and foodie experts.
