is the Original online Video portal...
nearly a decade before youtube.

After fighting censorship from my hometown for years,
I created you-on-tv.com to exercise my free speech
and make sure my show would be seen uncensored.

Although I didn't realize it,
adding video to my website was a historic event.
It would be hard to imagine the internet today
without online videos.
