Remember back in the early 90s how hbo was the sh*t and you could find almost everything or anything good on playing on a saturday night. Everything at that time on hbo was straight classic .Then remember how in 1995 when hbo 2 came out hbo 1 quality movies got played far less and less. Now you have hbo plus hbo latino hbo romance etc...Its all apart of the plan. Hook u good like a fiend in the beginning then when they surely got you they divide the product making u want all of it again.
That might make sense if you didn't get all those HBO channels packaged together. You act like you can subscribe to HBO but you can't get HBO Latina or some sh*t unless you pay double.

At least around here when you buy that sh*t it's all bundled together. You buy Starz, you get all those Starz Channels. Same with Cinemax and HBO.

Nope here's the thing.....people are making incredible content on YouTube and not making much unless they have millions of subscribers and get millions of views.....now if YouTube got 60 partners that will create content for the site and it only cost 2 dollars...that's a hella of a deal

Put yourself in the shoes of these people on YouTube....instead of being one of a million actors or comedians, they spend money on HD cameras, software, getting props, writing scripts and putting it all together for content......and some of these people get parts in movies now like spoken reason in that Sandra bullock movie and hotdamnirock too

So if n*ggas don't want content from 60 channels for 2 bucks a month then you need to re evaluate your life
youtube aint giving them no money tho

This won't end well with youtube. You charge live feeds, people will find another website for that particular experience. You charge for self help and financial help, people will find free material that is equivalent if not better. One thing the MP3 era has taught us and will continue to do so, is if you charge something on the internet best believe people will avoid it and find an alternative. Charge a buck for a song and someone will post the song free of charge.

Are there a minute amount of people who will pay for this because they want/need it? Sure but the vast majority of people won't because they are accustomed to the free viewing experience youtube set in place.

This won't work or should I say it won't work as well as they think they it will.

Did not read... but..

If they're introducing this program, they're most definitely cutting a check to the channels that are participating.

Not gonna happen. Them n*ggas got a cash cow with them ads, I don't see the need to try to get people to pay when they'll lose money from advertisers so it'll just end up with the same if not less money than they are making now. Even if they did try to slip something like that in there it would only be with select companies most likely, not every channel. Big time youtubers won't get down with it, and it wouldn't go far. People have been rumoring this for years though, I doubt this will ever really happen.

Trust me, n*ggas is gettin broke off on youtube. I see what you're saying, but I don't think those people would sign over their creative freedom for money when they are already living like celebrities with constantly growing fan bases.

This is a move to become to the Internet, what cable companies are to tv. This will be a huge move for the future of the Internet. I would love to have a nice organized channel list with quality content set up for me. For $2 a month? Just another reason for me to get rid of cable. All I need is live local sports and it's bye bye cable.

I agree people have realized everythings on the net and theyll pay for the hasslefree experience. A lot of ppl would pay $2 just so they dont see ads. For $2 YT is offering basic cable

This. As with most things. These companies aren't sh*t without us. Dumb n*ggas won't stop consuming though.

Now everyone who is on YouTube will try and be a 'partner' so they can get that subscription money.

I'm not trying to pay a subscription to see someone fall off a horse. Or some cats. Or someone playing Skyrim.

I kinda figured when them ads was playing on DAM NEAR EVERY video that they would just start charging a subscription service to view everything with no ads.

But this is a lil different.
