    Former Hulu CEO Jason Kilar revealed his new project, a video subscription service called Vessel, back in December. Now, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial of the service before deciding whether you want to take the plunge and pay $2.99 a month for early access to new releases.

    Vessel is hoping that viewers who are hooked on videos from YouTube stars and other internet personalities will pay to get an early look at their favourites latest videos. It’s a risky bet as new content will only be exclusive to the site for three days before creators can post it everywhere.
