Vessel, Led By Former Hulu Head Jason Kilar, Launches To Public

Vessel, the streaming media subscription service led by former Hulu CEO Jason Kilar, has launched to the public, saying that consumers can subscribe to the service for $2.99 a month. However, Vessel is offering up a year of service for free to new subscribers. The streaming video site prominently features content from such local providers as Machinima and TasteMade, along with other MCNs, and currently appears to have more YouTube stars than traditional, content providers on the service.
