YouTube Announces Paid Subscription Service

A new paid subscriptions service from YouTube called YouTube Red (which I’ve been reassured does not sound like a dodgy site and I should get my mind out of the gutter) is set to launch this month in the United States.

Beginning from the 28th October, YouTube Red will charge users a $9.99 (£6.46) monthly fee in return for ad-free videos. This subscription service will also give customers the ability to save videos to watch offline, or allow videos to keep running in the background on mobile devices while other apps are running or the screen is in standby – an option originally available to subscribers of Google Play Music.

Much like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu Plus,  YouTube Red will also offer exclusive content available only to it’s customers. Names included that will be creating shows include: CollegeHumor, Rooster Teeth and PewDiePie – who will be launching his new show entitled Scare PewDiePie – something I’ve heard is quite easy to do.

Currently there has been no word of when YouTube Red will be launching in other territories around the world, though all videos viewed through the service will be ad free regardless of their country’s origin.
