Coming to YouTube: Videos you’ll need to pay to see.
The world’s biggest video site is readying a slate of programming that will only be available to people who join its upcoming subscription services. YouTube will announce some of that programming, which it is helping to fund, at an event at its studio/event space in Los Angeles next Wednesday, October 21.
The Wall Street Journal claims that big names such as Fox Sports, A&E, and NBCUniversal are already on board to be included in the subscription service while Disney remains in negotiations.
