Google has partnered with quite a few other nations to provide more content through their Google Video service. France, the UK, and Canada are just a few of the nations which Google will be focusing on.
"Google hopes that the eight national editions will grow to reflect the likes of the countries each site serves - visitors can rate videos to help sort which ones are the most popular.
Included in the list of partners are ITN, Wimbledon video rights holder IMG Media, the Cousteau Society, Talkback Thames, Buena Vista International, FC Barcelona and France's National Audiovisual Archive."
Google still faces some extremely strong competition from competitor YouTube.com though.
