YouTube Moving to a Subscription Model?
This in from C21 Media.net:
YouTube has reportedly moved closer to offering users subscription services to access full-length TV shows, in an effort to tempt more broadcasters on board.
Eric Schmidt, CEO of YouTube parent Google, said in April that “micropayments and other forms of subscription models” were coming. Now, Google’s VP of content partnerships David Eun has hinted that this is on the horizon.
“We’re making some interesting bets on long-form content; not all content is accessible to us with the advertising model,” said Eun In an interview with Reuters, which reported that subscriptions were the favoured option.
