Introducing, YouTube Red! Ever wish you could watch YouTube videos in peace without being bombarded with ads? Now you can but for a fee… priced at $10 a month, users have the ability to save videos for offline viewing, no annoying ads, and one we’ve all been waiting for, the YouTube music app that allows a video to play in the background as your texting someone or scrolling through Facebook & Twitter. Other features include access to exclusive content like original YouTube series and movies! A new problem arises for users who want to upload their own content. Tech Crunch reports that “’any partner’ creator who earns a cut of ad revenue but doesn’t agree to sign its revenue share deal for its new YouTube Red $9.99 ad-free subscription will have their videos hidden from public view on both the ad-supported and ad-free tiers.”
How do you feel about this new feature and do you think it’s fair to its users and content creators?
Watch out Netflix and Hulu. YouTube Red and chill?
