YouTube content creators who are on the YouTube partner system recently got a very interesting email today.
YouTube is going to allow partnered channels to charge a monthly subscription fee to allow subscribers to watch their videos completely add-free. YouTube has made it very clear that this will be completely optional for partner channels to turn on and subscribers to choose paying for.
YouTube is going to give partners 55% of the earnings from these paid subscriptions, which is 5% more than the 50% that Twitch gives back to users from their paid subscriptions. The question is if partnered channels will want to use this new system, or if subscribers will find paying for their subscription for no adds worth it.by
