YouTube sees green with Red subscription service

YouTube will launch a subscription streaming service for ad-free video, music and gaming on October 28th for $10 a month, starting in the US before it rolls out globally.

Prominent YouTubers such as Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg, Lilly Singh, and Joey Graceffa will make exclusive shows for the Red service, while YouTube will also launch a standalone music app before Christmas, with extra features for paying users.

The report found that the BBC's effect on local newspapers and commercial broadcasters is far less important than the growth of internet access and the explosion of multi-channel choice fragmenting commercial revenues.

The channel mixes rich, beautiful scenery from around the world with relaxing soundtracks, all in 4k Ultra HD, and has just gone on-air in the US on cable service Videotron.
