YouTube paid-channel service officially launches

YouTube launched a paid-channel service to compete against the likes of Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, and other online video service providers. Except the streaming service runs on a slightly different subscription model, charging à la carte per channel you subscribe to. For example, BIGSTAR Movies costs $4.99 per month, HDNet “Guys Night In” is $1.99 per month, and National Geographic Kids is $3.99 per month. As of today, the service offers up to 53 channels to subscribe to. And, YouTube says they’ll be “rolling paid channels out more broadly in the coming weeks as a self-service feature for qualifying partners.” YouTube revenue is shared between the Google-owned service and the channel content partners. The paid channels are viewable on multiple platforms including mobile phones, tablets, TVs and PCs.

YouTube is offering a 14-day trial of each channel with no advertising breaks. At the end of the trial your supplied credit card will be charged unless you cancel.
