Youtube finally launched its much awaited Youtube Red subscription video service. here were a lot of rumors circulating about it lately and starting October 28 it will be available in the US.  The Youtube Red will roll out globally at a later date. Youtube revealed its subscription service at a Los Angeles event on October 21. The subscription will cost $9.99 per month.

Youtube Red will not only deliver everything available on Youtube without ads, it will also include the former Youtube Music Key feature. This is now called Youtube Music and will have its own dedicated app. In the $9.99 user will also get a  full subscription to Google Play Music. The Youtube Music offer with Youtube Red was created for playing music fast and its interface makes it easy for users to quickly find what they would like to listen to. Youtube Red subscribers will be able to choose whether they would only like to listen to a jam or watch the video also. The music offered to Youtube Red subscribers is not limited to official videos.

They get all this ad- free so user experience will be a lot improved. Although there is still a huge amount of content available on the Web free, the ad- free version of them might just be worth paying a monthly $9.99 fee.
