YouTube Red Coming October 28th

YouTube Red subscription will include gaming app, pending YouTube Music and access to Google Play Music

YouTube is synonymous with online video. Its user-generated videos generate the most monthly traffic (more than 1 billion viewers) of any website in the world. The Google-owned site has also quietly developed a cast of YouTube personalities (i.e. Justin Bieber, Michelle Phan) over the years, many of whom feature prominently in original programming.

Oct. 28 Google will bow YouTube Red, a $9.99 monthly SVOD service (following a free 30-day trial) featuring proprietary and third-party content from a variety of sources.

“It’s a major, major evolution of our business,” Robert Kyncl, chief business officer at YouTube, said at a Los Angeles press event. “Consumers are embracing paid subscriptions for ad-free content at an incredible pace. This marks an evolution in our desire to give fans more choice and features that they love.”

The launch is not YouTube's first foray into subscription-based content. In 2013, it launched third-party based SVOD channels that charged from 99 cents monthly for access. Notable channels included Lionsgate's BeFit featuring fitness trainers Jillian Michaels, Denise Austin, Jane Fonda, among others. It has generated more than 1 million subscribers.

Original YouTube Red programing includes:

“Scare PewDiePie,” a reality-adventure series from the creator of “The Walking Dead,” featuring Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (PewDiePie), a Swedish Web-based comedian with 10 billion views, best known for his "Let's Play" commentaries and vlogs on YouTube.
