    Youtube Charges Money?

    Pause...

    Maybe I live under a rock, that's cool and all. But since when did Youtube charge to watch videos? I was looking up Goldberg vs. Hulk Hogan for the WCW Heavyweight Championship and one of the videos I clicked on said if I paid the amazingly low price of $1.99, I'd get it in all of its HD goodness. When they start this up? And if this becomes the normal, they completely loss me with the bullshat. lol

    Really..? :/
    If that's happening, YouTube is going down a lot without a doubt. They started with a nice website filled with fun stuff (and weird stuff too) and went $#@!tier and $#@!tier.. If they start with charging money for watching some goddamn video's then they're goddamn retarded imo :/

    Been going on a while. Its probaby the organisers of the wrestling that monetised it. Youtube just gives them the option to use it.

    Haven't tried with anything else. It just so happened to be one video. Not all videos were monetized, just the one.

    Ah right hopefully it doesn't start to happen for all of them then, can see quite a lot of people being put off by it if it does!

    Now watch the amount of views of paid channels decrease drastically.
