The wild hunt for YouTube’s ad-free subscription is on. Everybody is trying to get their hands on information that would benefit them and show the world a new are of YouTube subscriptions: the ad-free sub. After years of having to use adblock, we can finally enjoy some YouTube videos without having ads blocking them from every direction.
A good number of YouTube users have been asking for this for years, partly because of the annoyance that the ads brought and party because of the sheer psychological pressure that marketing is putting on them. You see some super advertised product 100 times, you give in and buying after having lied to yourself that you actually need it, then you end up not using it at all.
People are getting smarter and they realize that they don’t want to spend all of their money on things advertised on the internet, so the logic is very simple: I want to be able to see some YouTube videos, or listen to some music, so instead of paying $100 on some product I see on the internet every month, why not give YouTube $10 and I won’t see anything annoying ever again?
Yes, that’s right, the new YouTube subscription is going to be called YouTube Red and it is going to cost $10 every month, courtesy to some of our people who have researched the information. We are talking about the end of all ads and a bright new feature for our eyes whenever we will access YouTube.
Everything started earlier this year, once YouTube started emailing channel owners, more commonly known as YouTube Partner Program members, in order to ask them to agree with the terms to come. Their deadline is on the 22nd of October and, unless they agree with the new terms and services, their monetized videos are going to be switched to private until they do so.
Well played YouTube. We can all see that they mean business and they are not giving people who are making money from YouTube much of a chance.
While we are not certain that October 22nd is the release date of YouTube Red, we can definitely expect some good news prior to this date. So you can all calmly put all the money away, because YouTube is making sure that we will never have to deal with ads ever again. It has come a long way, but we are finally proud that the ad era is slowly, but surely, coming to an end.
