YouTube thinking of charging for TV shows
YouTube is becoming more popular every day, we talked about that yesterday also. The video service owned by Google still wants to find more ways of making money. One of these ways could be charging for TV shows.
Google executive David Eun, in charge of partnerships with media companies, told Reuters that subscriptions like this are an option for YouTube they are exploring. After deals with amongst others Channel 4 and Five YouTube is looking for more similar deals with other TV channels.
"We're making some interesting bets on long-form content; not all content is accessible to us with the advertising model,"
YouTube has always been free for all users so a step like this would be a big one. But the very popular site is on the top priority list of Eric Schmidt who desperately wants to make money out of the site. The step therefore would make sense since it would most probably attract more possible partners.
