What you need to know
- Nebula has now passed 100,000 subscribers.
- The service is only a year old.
- Standard, the company behind Nebula, plans to expand its offering.
Nebula, the creator-built platform that describes itself as a "thoughtful expansion pack for YouTube," has announced that it has passed 100,000 paying subscribers.
Reported by Tubefilter, the platform has accomplished the milestone in a year, with around one hundred YouTube creators now part of the service. Between copying over videos from YouTube and creating originals, creators have uploaded over 5,000 videos to the service already.
Nebula is positioning itself as a way for creators to create content that they would otherwise shy away from uploading to their YouTube channel.
Dave Wiskus, Standard's founder and CEO, says that the success of the last year has propelled the team to now focus its effort to improve the user experience. It is also doubling its efforts with CuriosityStream, another streaming service that Nebula has partnered with to offer a bundle package.
You can try out Nebula free for 7 days, and then either pay $3 per month of $30 per year. For those who want to sign up for the Nebula/CuriosityStream bundle for $14.79 per year, you can do so by clicking on the link for the offer from one of your favorite YouTubers who are part of the platform.
