Here we will pronunce it "you"ber here. But when I watched Big Bang Theory, it is pronunced as "woo"ber. Which is correct?

JJ is right, Uber must be pronounced "oo-ber", it's not an American word, it comes from the German ├╝ber, that means over, or above.

I'm not sure. I pronounce in Uh - Bur. It may be wrong though.
