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.

I'm finally getting off my rump and working to convert several existing websites to true mobile version. The catch is that these sites have well over 1,000 pages each. Has anybody had any experience with a similar project?
