YouTube to offer monthly subscription service that removes ads
The email from YouTube also explains how content providers will receive a share of the revenue that YouTube collects from this monthly fee. Right now, there is no word on how much YouTube will seek each month for a subscription to its ad-free service. This is hardly new since many free ad-supported apps offer a premium paid version that eliminates ads.
YouTube has been making some changes with the most recent being the introduction of YouTube for Kids. In less than a month, the "safe" version of YouTube has been installed more than 2 million times.
We can't say that the way ads are woven into the YouTube site are really that bothersome. Many ads can be skipped over after five seconds. So the real question here is how many YouTube viewers would pay for the ad-free service. That is hard to guess without knowing what the subscription fee will be. Right now, we believe that most people would rather sit through the short ads rather than pay to have them removed.
