YouTube to start charging to watch videos
That's right - YouTube users will probably have to pay to watch videos which means more awful fan videos, more torrenting or indeed, a spike in traffic for MetaCafe who don't seem to ever want to apply copyright law to their work.
So what exactly is going to cost you money?
It'll apply itself as a subscription to dedicated channels, so access to a single channel will cost around £1.28 per month, most likely focusing on exclusive video channels, TV catch-up and films.
A source revealed the channels would show archived content or exclusive previews and clips, not that many will be wanting to take YouTube up on the offer as there are more deserving subscriptions to be paid elsewhere.
What do you reckon? Needless rip-off or absolute non-event?
