Re/Code reports that YouTube is launching a new subscription service where users can pay to watch YouTube commercial-free!
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
1. Who is going to pay to see commercial-free, unsteady-camera kitten videos? Certainly not dogs. Nor antisocial cats. And definitely not cats or dogs prone to motion-sickness.
2. How much will this cost? Because given Netflix costs about $8 a month, what could YouTube possibly expect people to pay for a service that doesn’t include original series like House of Cards. Zero? Does “zero” sound reasonable to you? It does to us!
3. Is this really a secret scheme to take away the “skip” commercial option? Because having to watch full new commercials for Kool-Aid, when you wanted to ironically enjoy 1980s commercials of Kool-Aid Man seems like some form of double taxation. Oh-yeah!
