YouTube Is Getting Paid Subscriptions

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Today, YouTube announced a premium subscription service that will allow users to pay a fee—$10/month—to watch videos without ads.

They’ve titled it YouTube Red—which may remind people of a certain not-safe-for-work website with a similar name—and they say the service will launch this month across the United States. In addition to stripping out ads, the service will also let you save videos to play offline on your phone. YouTube also says they plan to launch a series of shows that are exclusive to this service, featuring the likes of PewDiePie and other big video stars. (More info here.)


If you’re signing up, please do remember that it’s called YouTube Red and not Red Tube. Wouldn’t want to get... confused.
