For $10 a month, YouTube Red allows you to disable ads, download videos, and give you access to exclusive content.
YouTube ads are often the most obtrusive ones out there, and if you’re looking for a way to get around them without having to resort to an Adblocker, Google has just unveiled a new, premium subscription service for you. Called “YouTube Red”, the service offers ad-free YouTubing for $10 a month.
But that’s not all – YouTube Red subscribers will also be able to download and save videos to any device they are logged in on (just like… say… KeepVid). Additionally (and this is the big one) several content providers have teamed up with Google to create some exclusive content for YouTube Red users. These content creators include some of the biggest names on YouTube, like PewDiePie, Rooster Teeth and College Humor.
Google also announced a Spotify-esque service that would be launching with YouTube Red called YouTube Music, allowing users to stream music from any device.
Viewers in the U.S. can try YouTube Red for free with a one month trial on October 28.
