YouTube (GOOG) is planning to roll out paid subscriptions for individual channels, AdAge reports. The first channels, which could arrive by Q2, will reportedly cost $1-$5/month and feature a 45-55 revenue split; YouTube might also charge for content libraries and live events. The online video giant, which has invested plenty in professional content, has already hinted a subscription service could arrive. One unanswered question is how much TV channel and studio owners terrified of upsetting the pay-TV industry will play ball.
