Is that a lot of money to you?People pay $1.99/mo to be a member of that crap?
Is that a lot of money to you?
Lars is one of the Youtuber's that covers Tesla that actually gets it. Most of his content is free AFAIK, I just subscribed to support what he's doing. It's his full time job and his coverage is better than anything CNBC puts out. I only watch clips of CNBC just to see what most of America is being told about Tesla. Lars is way better. I also think it's cool that he's not biased to cars made in his home country of Germany - he just tells it how it is.
What specifically made you think his coverage was "crap"?
I'm not sure. I thought he was German but I don't know why I thought that. I was always surprised he doesn't seem to have a German accent so maybe he's Danish.I like Lars' BestInTESLA videos but I thought he lived in Denmark.
Did Lars move or maybe he is German and moved to Denmark?
As an investor one needs original research and analysis. Information on Tesla spreads like wildfire and so is relatively low value but good analysis is not nearly as common. $24/year is insignificant in the greater scheme of things and I didn't subscribe to get better access to his analysis (although I do enjoy his presentation style), I subscribed because I wanted to send a little money his way.Yes, paying a guy $24 a year to flap his lips without doing any original research seems a bit steep to me, yeah.
I like to spread it around too!I'd rather give it to Tesla Daily, Munro Live, or The Limiting Factor. But your tastes may vary.
PS, YouTube takes a huge chunk of a $1.99, taking 30% and of course taxes are paid on the gross that channels make, so that's ouch.
They take a rather large cut. One might notice that since they've been taking this large cut, their service has been worse to those hosting media on their platform.I like to spread it around too!
I don't mind the platform taking their cut, they have to run the servers (or pay someone else to do it) and handle all the transactions, send out the checks, etc. They are the reason I'm able to get the content I watch. I remember when all we had was network TV! I basically didn't watch it because it was all crap.
So much better now!
