As a space geek I would just like to say a big THANK YOU for this!

Thank Richard!
He stayed back after a 12 hour night shift to shoot this.
Couldn't get more footage as the powers that be wanted him to be able to drive home safely which is completely understandable.

Which is saying something, considering I only have one other subscription.

Can you do a video showing the microwave oven at the Parkes Observatory? http://www.wired.co.uk/article/microwave-parkes-observatory  :)

Ok, I've had many emails about the new channel name. Most think it's ok-ish, but they wanted the familiar EEV branding, and fair enough.
So I present EEVdiscover!

Now at 8k subs for 24k video views, that's only a 1/3 conversion rate.
Does that mean the idea is a flop? or would that be the natural expected interest rate on these types of videos? Hard to tell...

Might be a bit early to draw conclusions, I think.

Give it time, it's brand spanking new.
Perhaps a better metric would be a view count on (one of) the videos on the new channel vs subscribers. Keep in mind that your main audience is electronics crowd, not space nuts (your first two videos on the channel being space related). While there sure is an overlap, present company included, that is not to be expected for majority of your regular audience. Different interests and all that, perfectly reasonable.

Your next two videos are not related to space, so they will attract a different crowd. Give it time.

24k views? Do you get a different statistics that us, normal viewers, 'cause for what I see the count is at 9175 views (and 8528 subscribers), see screenshot below.

Channel creation date January 27th 2017, i.e. you were 'cooking' this new idea since a few months already?

I meant the number of views on the EEVblog channel for the announcement video. i.e. the number of people watched the announcement and bothered to go watch the Voyager videos or subscribe.

Since late last year.
I originally had much bigger plans for it, but have backtracked on those for now.

 Didn't get a chance to watch yet but as soon as I watch the first one I know I am going to hit the Subscribe button. So, maybe early to judge how many current EEVBlog subscribers/forum participants actually like the idea. I love the concept, getting to see things I have no connections with which to be able to gain access for myself. And of course space stuff. Usually watch the vintage NASA videos Homer posts, rarely watch Vintage Space because something about Amy annoys me.

I saw your announcement video while watching on my living room TV with a Roku 3.  Since the channel was only subscribable (is that a word?) via the link you gave, I had to wait until I was back at my computer (just now) to actually subscribe because the Roku YouTube channel does not show any video description data and thus I was not able to subscribe that way.
Other devices may have similar limitations, so I wouldn't take 1/3 conversion rate as negative yet.
At least wait until the channel becomes fully live and searchable before drawing conclusions.
I like EEVdiscover as a name.

What the flying fuck....
YouTube really messed up big time.

I guess this is the result of having a "new channel" having to have 100.000 views before they let you manage it more. I would guess that if any complaint is raised in that time frame, its instant death?

Are they insane?

That big red banner suggesting the account owner is deceptive is computer/auto generated libel.
