Why Watcher Left YouTube – And the Backlash

Watcher Entertainment, founded by ex-Buzzfeed stars, announced they're leaving YouTube.

They'll now post exclusively on their own paid streaming platform, Watcher TV.

Watcher cited creative control and the need to expand as reasons for leaving.

Fans were furious, citing affordability and the loss of easy access.

Many felt Watcher ignored the international audience with the paid platform.

Watcher apologized and now will release shows on YouTube a month after their platform.

Dissatisfied fans can still get refunds for their Watcher TV subscriptions.

This highlights the risk of creators moving from free platforms to paid ones.
