People all over the world have given voice and celebrity to themselves and many others because of the video age we live in. Nothing is done in the dark anymore. The camera is always running somewhere and there’s one site that will make sure whatever you film is seen.

But, now, they want to get in on the money other companies like NetFlix and Hulu gets for charging their customers for content. Just greedy, right? They will be in the hand-over-fist category of cable companies.
YouTube only offered that they have “nothing to announce at this time.”
But would say this, “We’re looking into creating a subscription platform that could bring even more great content to YouTube for our users to enjoy and provide our partners with another vehicle to generate revenue from their content, beyond the rental and ad-supported models we offer.”
The report states that, initially, 50 of its channels will be chosen for the paid option.
