Erstwhile business mobile provider Vodafone is getting down with the kids by doing a deal with YouTube.

Starting in the UK, Vodafone punters will be able to access YouTube through the portal Vodafone Live!. There will be a daily selection of videos, and customers can also upload their own content.

YouTube has a similar deal with US mobile firm Verizon.

The site remains very popular but is still struggling to deal with disputes over copyrighted material.

It's been a busy week for Vodafone, which also announced deals with MySpace and eBay. ®
