Whaaaaat…..??? o.O
That’s what exactly my first expression was after getting this news.
Imaging you’ve to pay Youtube now is one of the worst nightmares you’ll ever have, but sadly it’s not an imagination anymore. You HAVE TO PAY now. After months of speculation, Google has announced YouTube Red, a paid service based on the company’s free video-sharing platform, and music streaming app YouTube Music. Here are few things you should know about the two new versions of YouTube.

When will it launch?

The paid YouTube service will be available in the US starting 28 October, with plans to roll it out worldwide in 2016.

How Will It Affect Users?

Those who do not subscribe to YouTube Red may not get to watch original YouTube shows by popular content creators. 

As the chief business offer of YouTube Robert Kyncl said:

The creators of 99% of the content watched on YouTube have agreed to make their videos available on the paid platform.

YouTube Music

Google has also launched a new app called YouTube Music that is free to watch with ads. It will function much like a streaming platform, with organized channels that provide videos of each artist.
