Would You Pay for YouTube?

Google has announced that it will create a subscription based YouTube channel similar to Spotify or Netflix. 

According to telegraph.co.uk "It is not known how much Google would charge for an ad-free subscription to YouTube or exactly when it would launch. The free-to-use, ad-funded service is expected to continue alongside the subscription version".

This is exciting news and could go two ways for us content creators. Could this change allow quality indie-content producers to make more money out of the service (while also giving YouTube and Google a good living)?

Or could this lead to smaller indie producers being pushed out of the market by the big boys with larger production and distribution budgets?

It's too early to tell, however I always find it pays to be positive and if nothing else a subscription YouTube will make for an exciting change to an increasing interesting online content creation and distribution market.
