Unless, of course, the money from subscription is greater than the money from sponsorship and higher view rate.piinyouri said:Being that it's only up to the channel owner, I don't see a problem with it.
If a channel I enjoy starts doing it, I stop watching, and I'd imagine a lot of others would too, equating of course to lost subscribers, which no channel owner wants.
I wouldn't doubt a lot of providers would do just that if they though it was true. Now, I have no idea if it is, but I'm sure if it is we'll see a fast model change.
OT: Most of the stuff I watch is worth what I pay for it. Ad time. I won't be paying for it. If they go premium, I won't bother. However, as a separate service for certain channels (this seems more a television style thing), I MIGHT consider it.
In fact, I've long wished more providers would come up with pay services. I'd kill to be able to buy JUST HBO. I'm not paying a hundred bucks a month for channels I don't use in order to pay extra for HBO, but if they charged me, even at a premium price, I might. And if this was all through a service I already use, like Youtube, even better.
As it is, the options look like crap and not worth my money, but as long as it's not creeping into my free(ish, since I'm still burning time to pay for them) programming, I don't give a damn.
