YouTube App Update Suggests Paid Channels Are on the Way

Code found in YouTube’s most recent app update suggests that Google may be working on pay-to-view channels. Spotted by blog Android Police, the code mentions subscribing and unsubscribing from paid YouTube channels, a function that will apparently only be available on the web, not in YouTube’s mobile app. Rumors have circulated for some time that Google was considering paid channels on YouTube; the stray code in the app update all but confirms that rumor.
