YouTube to feature $10/month subscription-based Ads free service

A few months ago there were reports about YouTube providing a new subscription-based service that would allow the users to view the videos without any ads. As per the releases from the Re/Code, the online streaming service will soon allow the users to have a subscription-based viewing to avoid the advertisements from coming in the way.

It’s been almost a decade for YouTube to feature free video content with ads. Advertisements popping up in between the videos allow the creators to keep earning a significant amount of money from the videos they created, and as far as earnings are concerned, then there are YouTubers who make thousands of dollars a month just by creating the videos. The ranking of videos on the website is almost the same as the Google web search; better video and sound quality gets a preference.


YouTube is expected to announce a new $10/month scheme in the month of October, and as per an email sent to the creators, it clearly mentioned that this new service will allow the users to have an ad-free experience. Apparently, if the authors fail to sign-up by a date, YouTube won’t be publically showing the videos, which can further lead to a situation where creators lose their fan following.

“If you haven’t signed by that date, your videos will no longer be available for public display or monetization in the United States. And of course, at any time, you can accept the updated terms that will make your videos public and monetizable again,” the email stated.

Other than this, the membership will also include unlimited access to the Google Play Music, which already comes with a tag of $9.99/month. Apparently, this is going to be a good deal for all those who are already using the Google Play Music Unlimited version. However, if you were assuming that the subscription-based YouTube will allow you to watch the movies for free, then there is no way the company would give up on the rentals, shows and the movies on the YouTube.

YouTube works on the same parameters as of the Google Adsense. The algorithms provide ads on the basis of browsing history and location. The only difference here is that on websites we don’t see video ads, but on the YouTube it’s all about the TV advertisements.
