Since 2007, YouTube has adopted a partner program and it currently has more than a million partner channels and counting. Recently, it has launched yet another level of partnership with a paid subscription fee service. A few channels are now subscription based only and this number is expected to rise quickly.
All of these channels have a 14-day free trial period so consumers will be able to try out the channel before buying. Subscriptions start at $0.99 per month and can go up to $5.99 or more. More importantly, these subscription based channels are free of ads.
