Whilst watching YouTube videos, advertising shown on the site before streaming begins can sometimes be a little intrusive and spoil your viewing pleasure and becomes more annoying the more videos you watch.
If advertising spoils your YouTube experience you might be pleased to know that it has been revealed this week by YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki. That the company is currently planning to launch more options for YouTube users, including the possibility of a subscription that will remove adverts from YouTube movies.
Wojcicki explained during this weeks Code Mobile conference that the new YouTube ad-free subscription would run alongside YouTube’s main revenue model offering advert supported content for free. But would provide users an option to remove the annoying adverts if desired, via a Netflix style subscription package. The Tech Crunch website explains a little more :
“Bucketed subscriptions that focus on specific types of content might help increase the appeal for paying users, and you an imagine a scenario where Google charges a relatively small amount for any individual bucket subscription, letting users put together ad-free bundles of content they consume regularly, while still allowing them access to the rest for occasional, ad-supported use.”
No information on a launch date for the new YouTube ad-free subscription packages has been announced as yet by YouTube already details on the pricing structure that might be made available. However as soon as more information becomes available we will keep you updated as always.
