A Step In the Right Direction for Online Video — YouTube Red.

The sources further claimed that the subscription service Red that has been would be launching on Wednesday would be charging $10-per-month which would be combining ad-free viewing of the videos also including with limitless on-demand music. Official ESPN clips are disappearing from Google Inc.’s YouTube because of rights issues related to the video service’s new paid subscription YouTube Red. There will always be a demand for the free portion of YouTube and I expect pre-rolls will be the poison of choice to support that model for years to come. In case a Creator decides to stay on their own without joining the Red bandwagon, YouTube is going to mark their videos as “private”, and it will be only viewable to the Creators themselves, no audience would be able to watch them. “Ninety-nine point nine percent of the content on YouTube will be free, as it always has been”, Robert Kyncl, YouTube’s chief business officer, said but not revealing the other side of the story.

Just keep in mind that if you leave the United States, any videos you’ve already saved will work, but you can’t save new video until you’re back in the country. Media analyst Laura Martin of Needham & Co. says it is likely that ESPN’s pre-existing contracts with cable and satellite companies like Comcast prevent it from participating in YouTube’s subscription plan. On ESPN’s main YouTube channel, the most recent videos are now 4 years old, but a few specific channels like ESPN First Take have videos that are new as of Friday. Videos of partners who don’t update their terms will be made private, but we remain committed to working closely with these partners with the goal of bringing them on board.” Now ESPN’s videos aren’t totally gone.

Google said that 64% of consumer electronics shoppers watch YouTube videos on those products one week before the purchase, and 65% watch related videos the week after the purchase, bolstering the role that these videos play in supporting a purchase. “This is a real issue, it could seriously cripple the content creators”. YouTube began sending out new contracts to its creators six months ago to sign new terms that would allow them to participate in new revenue from Red subscriptions.
