YouTube Red officially available so you never need see an ad again

Play Music All Access/YouTube Music Key will automatically be enrolled in YouTube Red under the same monthly pricing scheme. Those who want to pay for the service will get a 30-day free trial before the $9.99 kicks in. In addition to ad-free playback on YouTube and all the music you can stream through Google Play Music, YouTube Red will allow users to save YouTube videos for offline playback, allow for playing YouTube videos in the background or with the screen off on your mobile device, and give you access to exclusive content.Those already paying for a subscription to Google
The one catch is that if you want the service, be sure to not sign up for it using the in-app payment purchase of the iOS app, because if you do, Google will charge you $12.99 per month in order to cover Apple's 30% fee on in-app subscriptions. If you want YouTube Red on iOS, just go to a proper computer or even the Safari browser on your Apple device to sign up.
If you love YouTube, but don't want ads, we would highly recommend Red. Using an ad-blocker may get rid of the ads, but it could also make your favorite content creators disappear because they can't all create the videos you love for free.

I wouldn't pay for Youtube Red, but paying $9.99 for Google Play Music All Access and getting Youtube Red included doesn't sound bad at all. I was already going to give Play Music a try after my Rhapsody subscription ends in December, so the included ad-free youtube is just icing on the cake.

I dont see why there's all the hate Right now I don't see ads, but my fav youtubers dont get money When Red is available in my country, I could add youtube to uBlock Origin's whitelist, so I don't see ads but my fav youtubers still get money Win win for both sides! Also includes Play Music and YouTube Music And the family sharing plan is coming So it $2.49 a month if I split it with 6 other people If you dont want it, dont worry, nothing changes You can still use adblock You wont notice any difference

I don't mind watching a few ad's for free video's. Totally cool with me. Not sure who is so busy they would need to save that 15 sec/ 45 seconds of their life for $9.99 a month.

Funny how So many people here are jumping to conclusion without even reading the whole thing. "Google Play music" all access included. So you're pretty much paying 9.99 for unlimited music and you get Youtube Red for free.

Its not just for removing ads. Many big channels will have content only available for red users. Pewdiepie the biggest name in gaming industry and youtube is making a show with THE WALKING DEAD creators just for youtube red subscribers for his channel. And many more. Plus you get youtube music which is like spotify. http://www.techinsider.io/scar

..."so you never need to see an ad again" or you're already using iOS so this doesn't matter.

So this includes all of the benefits of Google Play Music (which also costs $9.99 per month)? Also, if someone already pays for Google Play Music, then they automatically get Youtube Red?

Fixing ads in you site aint bad, but youtube ads are worse than any other site in the world! Its every where, like its the ads you came too look for. But the mobile site is almost ad free interestingly.
