Up until this moment, youtube users have only ever had one way to make money, and that was through Adsense. As many of you may already know, YouTube plans to be somewhat of the next TV. Reason being is that individuals between the ages of 18 and 34 watch more content on YouTube than they do on the regular TV networks.
Rumors have gone around about the company adding a paid subscription model for quite some time.
Today they are rolling it out to approximately 50 of its most premium channels. This will allow those channels the ability to create an additional source of revenue. Sources are saying that the subscription costs can start as low as $1.99 a month.
Surely YouTube will expand this concept further. Some are saying that it may add an ‘À la carte’ and pay per view option.
Won’t that be exciting? :)
