YouTube Pay Channels Are Here

Anyone interested in paying anywhere from $0.99 to $7.99 a month for a single YouTube channel? Personally, I'll stick with Netflix for the same price and get thousands of shows.

Starting today, we’re launching a pilot program for a small group of partners that will offer paid channels on YouTube with subscription fees starting at $0.99 per month. Every channel has a 14-day free trial, and many offer discounted yearly rates. For example, Sesame Street will be offering full episodes on their paid channel when it launches. And UFC fans can see classic fights, like a full version of their first event from UFC’s new channel.
