New YouTube App Code Shows Pay-To-View Is on the Way


According to Android Police, code in the recently updated YouTube app shows that Pay-To-View is in the works. It's just a matter of when.

The code pretty much speaks for itself:
< string name="paid_channel_subscribe_message">You can only subscribe to this paid channel on your computer.< /string>
< string name="paid_channel_unsubscribe_message">You can only unsubscribe from this paid channel on your computer.< /string>
According to previous rumors, the subscriptions should be relatively cheap, $1 to $5 a month. Still, paying anything for something that was previously free can sting, but maybe the pay channels will really bring some high-quality content. We'll have to wait and see, and the wait may not be long. More here.

This is interesting news. Youtube's already been on a decline of sorts from what I've read so maybe this'll help stop the rot.
