Disney have Maker Studios on their shopping list but there is a hefty price to pay for the online video production studio giant.

$500 million to be exact, for the studios behind such hits as PewDiePew and SnoopLion. Maker gets about 5.5 billion hits a month for its video content which is mostly on YouTube.

They aren’t the only broadcasters with designs on the magic of web videos – Warner have just confirmed an $18 million investment in Machinima and Dreamworks have invested $33 million in AwesomenessTV.

Let’s hope all that money goes towards some awesome video content!
