How Much To Pay?
YouTube Red has been priced at $10 per month in the US, while the pricing for foreign market has not been announced yet.
When will it launch?
The paid YouTube service will be available in the US starting 28 October, with plans to roll it out worldwide in 2016.
How Will It Affect Users?
Those who do not subscribe to YouTube Red may not get to watch original YouTube shows by popular content creators.
As the chief business offer of YouTube Robert Kyncl said:
The creators of 99% of the content watched on YouTube have agreed to make their videos available on the paid platform.
Google has also launched a new app called YouTube Music that is free to watch with ads. It will function much like a streaming platform, with organized channels that provide videos of each artist.
