Sky has quietly launched a beta version its own You-Tube style video user-generated site ths week named SkyCast.

Right now, there isn’t a whole lot to choose from except a couple of hysteric FanZone clips. But the hope from Sky is that fans will upload enough interesting videos that some of them may be incorporated into Sky shows such as Soccer AM, etc.

According to an article in The Guardian (registration required), “Sky will in time make selected content from its shows available on the website with the aim of building communities around major Sky genres.”

Don’t expect to see goal highlights from Sky, though. But there’s hope that we can see some content such as some of the best bits from Soccer AM.

The formal launch of SkyCast, backed by a blitz of promotion by Sky on its channels, is scheduled between April and June of this year.

In the meantime, check out the sneak peek of the site.
