Would You Pay To Watch YouTube Videos? [MakeUseOf Poll]
Last week we asked you how many devices that can connect to the Internet you own. Due to a slight glitch causing the poll to disappear from the post for a while, not many people had the chance to vote, but I highly recommend reading through the comments from some interesting insights on our connectivity!
Out of 250 readers who voted, 1% own 0 devices (that’s 2 whole people!), 15.5% own 1-3 devices, 35.5% own 4-6 devices, 23% own 7-10 devices, and 25% of the readers who voted own more than 10 devices that can connect to the Internet. Take that, 90s!
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
This week’s poll question is: Would You Pay To Watch YouTube Videos?
One of the biggest things that happened this week was the launch of paid channels on YouTube. While limited in number and availability to start, this is not something that’s going to stay small for long. YouTube is a video platform that’s always been completely free, and although ads are becoming more and more common, asking people to pay for channel subscriptions is quite a leap of faith from Google. Or is it? Would you gladly pay a subscription for a channel you like, or do you prefer watching ads? Should YouTube stay free forever, or is this a good step towards making it a better place?
While the poll only includes three answers, you’re more than welcome to explain your views and full opinions in the comments!
