Auntie has extended its love-in with YouTube adding an extra six channels to the video-sharing giant.

The BBC, which announced BBC, BBC Worldwide and BBC World channels on YouTube last year, has revealed its latest slew of channels aimed at non-English speaking viewers.

YouTube will now play home to six Beeb news channels in Arabic, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Urdu from the World Service.

The channels will be updated each day with language specific video news.

According to the BBC, its Global News unit, which includes the BBC World Service, BBC World News and the BBC's international web news services, notches up 233 million users every week.
