    ‘Hulu for music videos’ service Vevo is now live in the UK, the first time it has been available outside the US and Canada.

    Originally scheduled for late last year, a launch for the service outside North America was delayed, although some of its content was previously accessible via YouTube. It was reported last month that a UK launch was due by late April, and dead on schedule here it is.

    The service is a joint venture between Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, and Abu Dhabi Media, and also features content from EMI. In addition to the website, Vevo’s iPhone, iPad & Android apps are live to download in their respective UK stores. In the US, Vevo is also available on Google TV and Boxee.

    While some content from the service is available via YouTube in 200 countries, full launches in further countries are expected to follow in due course, as licensing deals are struck.
