YouTube starts paid channels YouTube has announced today that they have launched paid channels starting at $0.99.
Says the video sharing site: "Starting today, we're launching a pilot program for a small group of partners that will offer paid channels on YouTube with subscription fees starting at $0.99 per month. Every channel has a 14-day free trial, and many offer discounted yearly rates. For example, Sesame Street will be offering full episodes on their paid channel when it launches. And UFC fans can see classic fights, like a full version of their first event from UFC's new channel. You might run into more of these channels across YouTube, or look here for a list of pilot channels. Once you subscribe from a computer, you'll be able to watch paid channels on your computer, phone, tablet and TV, and soon you'll be able to subscribe to them from more devices."

YouTube started its partner program in 2007, allowing content creators to actually earn revenue on their content. There are currently over 1 million channels generating revenue, says the company.

If you have a channel or are a new content partner, you can get more information about your own paid channel here: Google sign-up
