After 10 years of free service, now YouTube is planning to initiate premium services for the paid users. By using the premium service, users will be free from the annoying advertisement, while playing the video in YouTube.
The long-awaited subscription service from the YouTube will be released very soon. YouTube has sent emails to the content creators to accept “terms and condition” with respect to the new free advertisement policies on YouTube. YouTube sent email to the video creators that they need to accept for the new terms and policies, and if they were refusing to accept, their videos will not be used for monetization and the video will be removed from the public display.
Here is the email text, which is sent from YouTube to the video creators,
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.

Along with YouTube membership, the users will get membership for “Play Music Unlimited”. Both the services comes with a price tag of $9.99 per month each, and Google offers both the services for the same price to promote the payment. The membership will only offer removals of advertisement in the user’s account. This doesn’t affect any sort of additional features such as movie rentals and so on. This is just an initiative by the Google, to introduce premium services in the YouTube. Rather than offering removal of advertisement, there is no sort of additional information has been provided by the YouTube so far.
