YouTube which is already composed of YouTube Music, Gaming and Kids apps, just introduced their new ad-free service.

They wrote on their blog, “For years, YouTube’s fans have been telling us they want more—more choice when watching their favorite content, more ways to support their favorite creators, and above all, the option to watch their favorite videos uninterrupted… On October 28th, we’re giving fans exactly what they want.

Introducing YouTube Red — a new membership designed to provide you with the ultimate YouTube experience.”
The membership will be available to users at $9.99 a month on their new app (that they announced is launching soon) and can be used on a multitude of devices, creating that ease of transition that everyone can get down with!

Just think Apple Music meets YouTube. Whatever songs you play, the app will tailor similar songs to you. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find new artists that you love. After all, they say that “YouTube Music is designed to make discovering, watching and listening to music easier than ever.”
But. there’s. even. more. YouTube had the audacity to tell us that they’re also launching a service that I’m sure will compete with Netflix! “[starting] early next year, YouTube Red will get even better with member-only access to new, original shows and movies from some of YouTube’s biggest creators.

You can read all about Originals coming to YouTube Red here. This service will be available on the new app as well, but only if you’re a member!
What YouTube is trying to do is narrow the gap between an artist and their fans. They just want to make it so that you can go the extra mile in supporting their favorite artists, if you want to. Regular old YouTube will stick around, though so #DontPanic. YouTube Red is in the U.S. for now, but will be launching in different countries very soon.
YouTube Red is offering a free one-month trial starting October 28th!
