YouTube recently announced subscription-based channels, and you probably won’t want to pay for most of them. But for a channel dedicated to ’90s cartoons, or for The Rap Battle Network, you just might.
On Thursday, YouTube announced in a blog post that they would be rolling out a slate of subscription-based channels — ones you’ll have to pay for. Rumors of this announcement were swirling earlier in the week, which raised the question of whether people would actually pay to watch YouTube. The overwhelming response was: nope. Not gonna do it.
But now the 53 channels have been announced — and yes, a lot of them are generic, market-tested fare like Pets TV, Recipe TV and Cars TV. But! But! A handful of the channels actually look pretty awesome too! Here are eight channels that you might actually pay money to watch.
If you love 90s cartoons…
DHX Retro is like the BuzzFeed Rewind of paid YouTube channels. There is so much nostalgic cartoon goodness: Inspector Gadget, Super Mario Brothers, Sabrina The Animated Series, Archie’s Weird Mysteries, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legends of Zelda, Paddington Bear.
If you're obsessed with British television…
We’ve already seen Sony take a stab at a Windows 8 hybrid in the form of the VAIO Duo 11, and now a clip has appeared on YouTube apparently showing an unannounced 13-inch Ultrabook slider with a 1080p Triluminos touchscreen display. Allegedly, the video is being used for training at UK retail chain Dixons, and in addition to repeatedly collapsing and opening the slim white and silver unit, the demonstrator plays around with a stylus in Microsoft’s Fresh Paint. There are a couple of text overlays near the end of clip, highlighting the “SurfSlider design,” backlit keyboard, ClearAudio+ and ActiveSleep tech, as well as its 10 hours of battery life. NFC is also said to be on board, along with an 8-megapixel camera with Exmor RS sensor, Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD. The incredibly grainy video is embedded after the break, and although we can’t verify its authenticity, we also can’t ally it to any known product.

The official Gmail app for iOS has been available since 2011, but up until now, links to Maps and other Google utilities have directed users to the browser rather than to the respective programs. A just-released update to Gmail for iOS lets you jump into Chrome, Google Maps, YouTube and other native programs directly from links in your inbox. Those who prefer to keep things browser-based, however, can turn off this new functionality via the app’s setting menu. Version 2.2.7182 (granular, much?) also lets you sign out of a single Gmail account rather than having to sign out of them all — a boon to those of us juggling work and personal identities. Hit up the source link to download the update.

YouTube just keeps adding quality content. Last week it was comedy, and this week it’s bulking up on its sporting chops with a Major League Baseball partnership. Always among the most tech-savvy of major sports leagues, MLB has beefed up the offerings on its YouTube channel to include highlights from every game of 2013 (two days after they’ve occurred), and a vast archive of full games from as far back as 1952. Plus, should you reside outside the US, Canada, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan, you’ll get to watch two live games every day during the regular season for free. So, seamheads, head on over to the MLB.com YouTube channel — your digital field of dreams awaits.
Sure, watching YouTube videos in HD is great when you want clarity, but maybe you’ve been yearning for that grainy, tape-recorded look. Marking what’s apparently the 57th anniversary of cassette-based video recording, the YouTube team has snuck a VHS tape-shaped button on select videos. Clicking it will the throw a filter over the content, providing a highly distorted and nostalgic feast for the eyes. There’s no official list of compatible content, but the option seems to be available on most of the videos on YouTube’s native channel. We have a feeling at least one VCR enthusiast will be quite pleased.

I ’ d wager that many of you reviewing this didn ’ t make it out to Austin for SXSW, as well as less of you still have ever before gotten some hands-on time with Google ’ s ambitious Glass job. On the off possibility that you ’ ve been investing these previous few weeks agonizing over all the juicy Glass bits you lost out on by not being there, you can rest easy — Google has uploaded the full video of its 50 minute Glass session on YouTube.
The talk — titled “ Building New Experiences with Glass ” included Senior Developer Advocate Timothy Jordan providing attendees (and now you) a short rundown on what it ’ s in fact like using Google Glass. We ’ ve seen these types of hands-on impressions in the past, but Jordan ’ s session managed to give attendees a clearer concept of exactly what the Glass user interface really appears like while he ’ s rubbing away at the side-mounted trackpad or checking out updates from his Google+ buddies.
More notably, Jordan ’ s session provided those on-site designers a glance at exactly what it really takes to build services for the head-mounted screen. In it, he made numerous references to how simple the advancement process actually was (it ’ s “ simple, ” as he puts it), however there ’ s more than sufficient meat here to offer prospective Glass developers a taste of what they ’ re in for. In the end though, Jordan was bullish on exactly what Glass implies for how we as users connect with our gadgetry — he didn ’ t go as far as saying traditional touchscreens were “ emasculating ” like a certain various other Google employee, but he pointed out that current modes of interaction usually tend to separate us from the occasions and experiences of our lives.
“ It feels like tech is frequently getting in the method more than it has to, ” Jordan mentioned. “ Which ’ s exactly what we ’ re attending to with Project Glass — it ’ s so that you can still have access to the technology you adore, however it doesn ’ t take you out of the moment. ”
Jordan and his companies at Google could think we ’ ll love Glass, but the real jury has yet to weigh in. While Google is prepping Glass for an extensive consumer release at the end of this year, it has actually also reached out to hundreds of potential Glass Travelers about claiming their own $ 1,500 tester units. So far the search titan has been exceedingly cautious about who has actually reached play with its vision of the future, but that ’ s all about to alter in short order.
