Google reportedly wants YouTube Red to directly compete with Netflix

Wall Street Journal report, YouTube doesn't want to license catalogs of old TV shows and movies, but wants to make deals with studios for new content. The idea seems to be that YouTube wants to license content similar to Netflix's offerings of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, where the content is produced by an outside source and shown on YouTube. It appears as though YouTube does not want to produce content itself, like Netflix did with Arrested Development, but offer exclusives made by YouTubers (like the previously announced PewDiePie horror show) or content from studios.However, YouTube is reportedly going about it in a slightly different way. According to the
All in all, it sounds like another way to make a good deal even better. YouTube Red already gives you ad-free YouTube, offline playback, exclusive content, and Google Play Music All Access, so more content just makes the deal that much more enticing.

Right now its Play Music All Access + YouTube Red, already a great deal If Google added Play Movies & TV All Access, it would definitely be a good alternative to Netflix But I'd still get Netflix for their exclusives, e.g. Daredevil and Jessica Jones

That will definitely raise up the price of YouTube Red. Which many people already have a problem paying $10 just for background listening and no ads alone, adding TV/Movies streaming will skyrocket the cost.

i rather they complete with hulu. Netflix has old crap and by the time they new seasons of shows it's 4-6 months after they are released. only good thing about Netflix is their originals We need a service just like hulu but retains their episodes. because i am not going to start on season 5 ep 6-11 when i haven't seen the first episodes.
