Re/Code reports that YouTube will introduce a slate of programming for its upcoming paid subscription service tomorrow. Over a year ago, YouTube announced that it intended to “fund new content from some of our top creators.” And according to Re/Code’s sources, some of said content will wind up behind YouTube’s subscription paywall. (It’s a good bet that the content will in part consist of upcoming programming from Smosh, Prank vs. Prank, Joey Graceffa, and the Fine Brothers, which YouTube previewed in an April 2015 blog post.) YouTube will continue operating its free, ad-supported site alongside the subscription version. Some sources say the subscription service will launch later this month, though that’s not set in stone. In any event, Re/Code says the new YouTube-funded programming likely won’t be available until 2016.
