During the year a paid YouTube Red drew only 1.5 million subscribers
At the end of October last year, Google introduced its premium subscription YouTube Red, which removes ads, allows you to save videos for later viewing offline, and play them in the background (on mobile devices).
As reported by the Verge, the year YouTube Red managed to attract a total of 1.5 million subscribers, while YouTube is used regularly over a billion people. We will remind, at a price of $ 10 a month, subscribers also get access to the music service Google Play Music, which represents more than 35 million songs.
