Niche Content, Meet Subscription Revenue

As witnessed by the recent explosion of GoPro videos of harrowing first-person action sports experiences—YouTube’s move into providing subscription media channels bridges the gap between content creators and meaningful revenue opportunity by giving content creators easy access to large audiences and significant revenue for those capable of creating content that people love.
