We have posted, shared and watched a lot of free Youtube content and according to a report from the Financial Times, Youtube is now on the turning point of revealing its own subscription services for some of its specialist video channels.

Rumored for several months,according to the FT‘s unnamed sources it will include up to 50 different channels, with subscription pricing starting at “as little as $1.99 a month.” Google has already followed up, saying it had nothing to announce just yet, but that it was investigating “a subscription platform that could bring even more great content to YouTube.”
