YouTube confirms paid channel subscriptions starting at $0.99 a month

The rumors were spot on. Today, Google has revealed plans of offering paid channels on YouTube with subscription fees starting at $0.99 per month. A pilot program, which begins today, will include a small group of partners including Sesame Street, UFC, On Cue, and more.

These channels will be offering full episodes in exchange for the monthly subscription fee, although users can avail a 14-day free trial to see if the unrestricted access is worth all the money. Google says that it will be rolling out the more paid channels in the coming weeks. Once subscribed, users can watch paid channels on their computer, phone, tablet, and TV.
