Youtube now optimised for Wii
PS3, too.

Youtube has recently launched a new service called "Youtube TV", which as you can probably decipher, is Youtube formatted for the TV. The service, currently in beta, offers some of the basic features you can currently get on Youtube for PC, such as searching, playing videos, latest videos and accessing your own account.

The site offers larger text and buttons, as well as a much more accessible interface for use with video game controllers. Unfortunately, the site is only fully viewable via the PS3 and Wii, as even changing the user agent does not offer the full experience.

After personally using this service for the first time two nights ago, I was very impressed with the speed and the fluidity of the interface, and makes watching youtube videos on the TV a pleasurable experience.

I was using this 2 nights ago and it was slow as hell. Switched to the regular youtube page and it seemed to fix my issues.
On the new TV version the videos wouldn't load and I would just wait at those spinning loading images.

It doesn't actually take over a channel on your TV. It just makes it faster for console web browsers.
