There have been a lot of rumors and speculations regarding paid YouTube subscriptions, and now, we have some new rumors related to it.

Google spokesperson mentioned in an interview that they are considering paid subscriptions for YouTube from which content creators on YouTube could benefit from, and now, according to the Financial Times’ report, it seems that YouTube paid subscription service could be launched as early as this week. According to this report, about 50 YouTube channels are expected to use this new subscription service at launch, but our guess is that number of paid channel will increase over time. As for the price, the subscription fee starts at $1.99 per month. As for Google, they already confirmed that they are looking into the paid subscription service, so we’re guessing it’s only the matter of time when we’ll see those paid channels.

YouTube paid channels will be beneficial to the YouTube content creators, but the question remains how many average users are willing to pay a monthly fee to watch their favorite channels.
