YouTube could launch its video charging thing as early as this week!I’m not paying for YouTube,ever!
The service,which may include up to 50 channels,would allow single channel subscriptions for $1.99 a month,according to people who are familiar to the plan.The plan has been confirmed to CNET,but CNET haven’t been told when it’s being launched.
Having a paid stream would let the video site a new source of money(less advertising maybe)and give the people who make the video money as well,a source said.
YouTube didn’t comment on the launch date for the service,saying on earlier statement that they had “nothing to launch”.But that it was””looking into creating a subscription platform that could bring even more great content to YouTube for our users to enjoy and provide our creators with another vehicle to generate revenue from their content, beyond the rental and ad-supported models we offer.”
YouTube has told producers about devolving content for a subscription platform that the site hoped to launch this year,according to an AdAge report in January.Also,YouTube is mulling a plan to charge for other items such as live events and things like that(I use Ustream for Livestreams so I’m ok.).
Shortly after that report,code was found in the YouTube app for Android that refered to paid channel subscriptions.The code,which was made to generate messages like “You can only subscribe to this paid channel on your computer,” and “You can only unsubscribe from this paid channel on your computer.”
