YouTube just announced that they are slicing bread… or something that big… YouTube Red
From the YouTube Red Announcement
For years, YouTube’s fans have been telling us they want more—more choice when watching their favorite content, more ways to support their favorite creators and, above all, the option to watch their favorite videos uninterrupted.
On October 28, we’re giving fans exactly what they want. Introducing YouTube Red — a new membership designed to provide you with the ultimate YouTube experience.
YouTube Red lets you enjoy videos across all of YouTube without ads, while also letting you save videos to watch offline on your phone or tablet and play videos in the background, all for $9.99 a month. Your membership extends across devices and anywhere you sign into YouTube, including our recently launched Gaming app and a brand new YouTube Music app we’re announcing today that will be available soon.
YouTubers Responded to YouTube Red
Like everything YouTube, some love this and some hate, decrying that YouTube Red will end life as we know it. They have a genuine beef. YouTube Red will force them into tighter, possibly restraining contract with YouTube. As much as the announcement promises more money for them, and the world is fed up with interruption advertising, the YouTube stars are making their living from the ads.
