YouTube has all good things except one!- The annoying ads! While many of us sometimes get hold of useful information about products from the ads, but most of us straight way dislike the ad feature. So, YouTube has been thinking of sorting out this problem and as far as reports are concerned, the video streaming giant will launch its own ad free service from October 22. YouTube has personally emailed to every user who has content in their YouTube channel. But the users will need to pay a monthly subscription to avail this feature. Once they do so, they can watch every video without ads which was otherwise showing ads. Content creators need to agree to the new licensing terms and conditions for enjoying this feature. If they fail to do so, then videos will no longer be available for public display or monetization in the United States. The subscription price is only $10 per month. It’s surprising how can YouTube provide ad free subscription at such a low subscription fee.

For years, YouTube’s fans have been telling us they want more — more choice when watching their favorite content, more ways to support their favorite creators and, above all, the option to watch their favorite videos uninterrupted.
To give fans more choice we will be launching a new ads-free version of YouTube, available to fans for a monthly fee. This service will create a new source of revenue over time that supplements your advertising revenue. That’s why an overwhelming majority of our partners — representing over 95% of YouTube watchtime — have asked for and signed up for this service.
As you heard in our previous emails, we want to ensure that fans who choose to pay for an ads-free experience can watch all the same videos that are available on the ads-supported experience. That’s why we’re asking you to update your agreement to reflect the updated terms for the ads-free service.
To accept, simply log into YouTube.com as “pakafka” from a desktop or laptop and follow the prompts by October 22nd.
If you haven’t signed by that date, your videos will no longer be available for public display or monetization in the United States. That outcome would be a loss for YouTube, a loss for the thriving presence you’ve built on the platform, and above all, a loss for your fans. We remain committed to working with you, as we always have. And of course, at any time, you can accept the updated terms which will make your videos public and monetizable again. Common FAQs can be found here.
We believe these new terms will greatly strengthen our partnership for the future. We went through a similar process three years ago when we began distributing and monetizing your content on mobile devices. Today, mobile represents over half of all watchtime and mobile revenue is up 2x in just the last year. Just as with mobile, we’re confident this latest update will excite your fans and generate a previously untapped, additional source of revenue for you.
