WWE’s YouTube Channel Will Soon Require A Paid Subscription

The Financial Times reports that Google is set to unveil a YouTube subscription service as early as this week.

As many as 50 of YouTube’s most popular channels will soon carry a subscription fee starting at around $1.99 per month.

“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,” a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement.

According to the Financial Times, initial channel partners would include WWE, Howcast, The Onion, and gaming network Machinima.
