The feature kicks off with a little over fifty channels available, all charging various prices. Clicking through what’s available, I noticed several channels at the $2.99 price point. The Laugh Factory VIP channel offers two subscription choices: $2.99 a month or $27.99 a year ($2.33/month). All channels come with 14-day trials. Paid channels are also free of advertising, which is a huge plus.
I was fairly indifferent to this feature when it was being kicked around, but now that I see it in action, I’m actually a bit excited about it. There isn’t a lot of great content yet; even the movie channels only have a handful of movies. As the selection expands, however, I could easily see myself dropping three bucks for a month’s worth of movies. (Editor: Our YouTube Channel is still free. Give it sub!)
