Vessel Launches For Video Creators As YouTube Challenger Heads Toward 2015 Debut

The site will offer fans early access to stars’ videos for a $2.99 monthly fee. The service, which is focused on mobile users (i.e., all those Millennial and younger YouTube fans), also will offer an ad-supported version of the service that provides access to the stars’ latest work, 72 hours after a clip first appears behind the pay wall. Creators also can post on other sites after the initial 72-hour period passes. The FAQ said a large number of film, TV and online video creators are already on the site, but did not identify them. An official image of the app, however, includes logos from Project Runway, Alec Baldwin’s Love Ride, foodie site Tastemade, gamer multi-channel network Machinima and JAY Z’s Life+Times.
