YouTube reportedly could launch its paid subscription service for some of its specialist video channels as early as this week.

The a la carte service, which could involve as many as 50 video channels, would allow single channel subscriptions for as little as $1.99 a month, people familiar with the plan tell The Financial Times. YouTube confirmed to CNET in February that it was developing such a service but did not indicate when it would be ready for subscribers.

Which is why Y were interested in buying into Daily Motion at 75% ( with option to take all )..in anticipation of a large number of youtube users leaving youtube ( and looking "elsewhere" ) if they have to pay for access to some "premium" content..

People like free stuff, cant really see me paying to watch old network sitcoms which is what I use it for now.

I doubt this will impact the free content that much. The biggest thing is just going to be every obnoxious youtube video spending the last 30 seconds pitching their premium channels.
