YouTube’s Completely Ad-Free Subscription Likely To Launch October 22nd With …

Ad-Free YouTube Could Be Launching Next Month.

YouTube might be launching its long-awaited subscription service as soon as the end of October, according to Recode. Recode reports that a batch of emails has been sent out to channel owners (YouTube Partner Program members) asking them to agree to the new terms by October 22nd or their monetized videos will be switched to private until the new agreement is accepted.

It’s been long proposed, speculated, anticipated and dreaded, for some, but YouTube subscriptions are coming in October, when the company is expected to announce their paid-for services.We all know YouTube has been planning to launch a completely ad-free subscription, but the details have been sorely lacking on things like how much it will cost, what will be included, and when it will launch. Just like earlier reports revealed, if providers refuse to get on board, their catalogues will “no longer be available for public display or monetization in the United States.” The service won’t just flush out ads from videos, though: Recode says the company’s $10-a-month offering also comes bundled with Music Key, the website’s music streaming product that features offline access, background playback and more. What remains to be seen is how this revenue will be split up, or if the subscription will in fact increase revenue for content creators over traditional advertising. Payments of usd10 has always been indicated in various research results in the last couple months, a cost that might stay in step with others inside of the flowing area.

And it will be launched as single service which will bundle two services – the music service called YouTube Music Key which is already in beta and the ad free YouTube video service. So it’s unclear how the company will make money from the twofer, especially since it reportedly had trouble locking down deals for its ads-free model earlier this year. Keen to do more than simply break even, YouTube has for some time been looking to incorporate a subscription-based offering, past year launching Music Key that brings ad-free music, background play, and offline access to the platform.

A YouTube rep declined to comment beyond an amended version of a statement the company has offered in the past: “We are progressing according to plan to provide fans more options in how they enjoy content on YouTube”. One of our own tipsters has confirmed YouTube Red will be the name for the all-in-one subscription. “As you heard in our previous emails, we want to ensure that fans who choose to pay for an ads-free experience can watch all the same videos that are available on the ads-supported experience. These creators can choose to re-enable monetization in their account settings, but it’s unclear if this action will require their compliance with the updated terms or if it will allow creators to keep monetizing their videos on the free version of YouTube. You’ll get to keep your current user name (as long as it doesn’t contain invalid characters, in which case you’ll have to go through a few extra steps to make the transfer), and all your old comments will eventually (not immediately) migrate with you. This can give Google a great opportunity to position the new subscription alongside the new Chromecast that’s also expected, especially if there’s a trial period or promotion for Chromecast buyers.
