It wasn’t all that long ago when YouTube sought a bunch of partners to develop original content for them. It also wasn’t that much later that YouTube yanked a lot of those Channels’ funding when they weren’t making any money. Now YouTube has a new idea for these content providers: monthly subscriptions between $1-$5 a month. It kinda makes sense.
Now, I don’t watch YouTube content on the regular, which means I’m Google’s worst enemy in that regard, but if you’re into video content on the regular, this is a pretty good option. That YouTube is being so selective about it is a little weird, though. Couldn’t they make a lot more money by allowing all their YouTube Partners to set up their own subscription feeds? Wouldn’t that make a lot more sense? Okay, I’ll believe they’re just testing waters for now.
