The Hollywood Reporter has a story stating that YouTube, which is owned by Google, is set to announce that it is starting an online version of programming, signing 100 content providers to a network of professionally produced shows.  WWE is one of the companies providing content. Among the providers, in addition to WWE, will be BermanBraun, FremantleMedia, Shine Group, The Wall Street Journal, pro skateboarder Tony Hawk and actors Ashton Kutcher and Amy Poehler.  Google is paying the providers, with a maximum of $5 million to a provider.  The content will be available on a premium (paid) basis.  Most of the channels are expected to launch next year.
