Do you remember Music Key, YouTube’s subscription service that allowed you watch ad-free music videos, download them and play music videos in the background? It’s now called YouTube Red and it’s no longer limited to music videos.
YouTube Red is launching on October 28 in the US and it will bring the features from Music Key to all the YouTube videos. “YouTube Red lets you enjoy videos across all of YouTube without ads, while also letting you save videos to watch offline on your phone or tablet and play videos in the background, all for $9.99 a month. Your membership extends across devices and anywhere you sign into YouTube, including our recently launched Gaming app and a brand new YouTube Music app we’re announcing today that will be available soon.”
Just like Music Key, YouTube Red will include the Play Music subscription and Play Music subscribers will get access to YouTube Red for free. Of course, YouTube Red will need to be available in your country first.
There’s another bonus feature for YouTube Red subscribers: exclusive shows and movies from some of YouTube’s biggest stars. Reality shows, drama series, adventure series, scripted comedies, feature-length movies – there’s something for everyone.
You can try YouTube Red for free and start a one-month trial. The service launches on October 28 in the US and Google plans to add more countries soon.
