Like any successful company, YouTube has continued to innovate. On October 28th, YouTube Red will launch. YouTube Red is a subscription based experience of YouTube that will allow users to access the entire site, free of advertisements. In addition, YouTube Red will feature a music play back service. Meaning it will have similar functions to other music streaming services such as Spotify, and Apple Music. Another exciting feature YouTube Red provides is unlimited access to YouTube original TV series, and movies.
Customers can have access to YouTube Red for $9.99 per month. This seems to be a reasonable price, because it includes non-interrupted music streaming, as well as any other YouTube video. Other streaming services can match advertisement free music, but there is no other service that can provide the amount of video content that YouTube Red can.
I am planning on beginning a subscription when the service becomes available next week. The advertisements on YouTube are very annoying, especially when it is a 30 second advertisement, and the actual video is only 15 seconds long. Getting rid of the ads on music, as well as videos is an offer no other competitor can currently match. I don’t presently have a subscription to a streaming service, so this seems like a no brainer.
Will you leave your favorite music streaming service in favor of YouTube Red? Let me know what you think in the comments.
