YouTube is adding a $10/month subscription service. It's YouTube but with no ads, and some exclusive content starting in 2016. They'll also add limited Save Offline and Play In Background functions

They're giving away a free month starting on 10/28 (though it looks like something you'll have to unsub from not to automatically get billed.)

The ads on YouTube have become increasingly annoying - I believe I got the same video ad on five straight videos the other day - but $10 seems too high just to remove them. Original content sounds good, but there's so much good content out there I have no time to watch that it really has to be something spectacular to move the needle for me. Maybe I'd feel differently if I wasn't still a TV-first person; people who just watch YouTube all day (or especially those who use YouTube as their music service) might get more out of it.

I do generally like that they're trying to find another way to pay people who are using this service.

(There's a three dollar markup if you buy via iOS. Don't do that.)

You'd think the "YouTube Red" name would be a little too similar to Redtube for YouTube's liking.

Agreed. Before I read the post, I saw the headline and immediately thought of a porn service. I mean, I knew it wasn't going to be, but that's where my mind went. Maybe I'm showing my biases.

While I'm not worried about Apple - the joke is that Time Cook has quietly run the company for years - I can't help but think this means that Jobs' health has turned for the even-worse. Steve Jobs Resigns as Apple's CEO (arstechnica.com)
