There’s nothing worse than paying for television service to only be interested in a small amount of channels while the rest are barely touched. Television subscribers are paying a ton of money in order to watch their favorite shows, although we know many of you would prefer to pay only for the channels you want to watch. YouTube is clearly aware there’s interest in this kind of content consumption and is reportedly preparing a paid subscription service for a number of its channels.
During an interview with Adweek, a Google spokesman spoke of the possibility of providing paid subscriptions in YouTube’s future:
“We have long maintained that different content requires different types of payment models. The important thing is that, regardless of the model, our creators succeed on the platform. There are a lot of our content creators that think they would benefit from subscriptions, so we’re looking at that.”
There’s no word what channels would be considered good enough to warrant a paid subscription, but prices would range somewhere between $1 – $5 per month for access to the content. We certainly would pay within that range for Epic Meal Time and maybe some of those channels that involve girls jumping on trampolines without even hesitating.
