YouTube Launches Paid Channels, Including One From The Jim Henson Company


After weeks of speculation, YouTube has launched several paid channels, including one from The Jim Henson Company.

In a blog post today, YouTube confirmed reports from earlier this week that it would allow select content creators to charge for access to their channels for an additional revenue stream beyond advertising.

The Google-owned video site said that the pilot program currently includes only a few channels, with prices starting at $0.99 a month and including discounted yearly rates.

One of the major channels that is available already is Jim Henson Family TV, which includes content from The Jim Henson Company. There’s already content from "Fraggle Rock" and "The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss".

Full episodes of "Sesame Street" will be available for families to enjoy.

A subscription to the Henson channel is $2.99 a month.
