YouTube Red ad-free subscription service is now live in US

Himanshu, 29 October, 2015

As promised, Google has launched the YouTube Red ad-free subscription service in the United States. Although it's priced at $9.99 a month, it comes with a one-month free trial so you can get a taste of it before you start paying for it.

For those who aren't aware, the new service - aside from being ad-free - also lets you save videos on your mobile for viewing offline, as well as supports background playback. Google has also promised that YouTube Red will soon feature new original shows and movies made by "some of YouTube's biggest creators."

Also what's worth mentioning is that the service comes bundled with Google Play Music - conversely, those already subscribed to Play Music will also get access to YouTube Red for no additional cost.

I'm curious to know how YouTube Red will affect the videobloggers who profit from YouTube? I have read articles on it but it's not clear to me how.
