YouTube said set to soon launch pay channels
LOS ANGELES (AP) - YouTube is set to announce within a few weeks a series of channels that will require payment, a person familiar with the matter said on Monday.
The content on the new pay channels will be in addition to the millions of videos viewers watch for free on YouTube. It's not clear whether the paid videos will come with advertising.
The person was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The Financial Times reported earlier that viewers would be charged as little as US$1.99 (S$2.45) a month for subscriptions.
