    Seems a lot of money to pay when a lot of those features can be had via other means.

    I may have missed this already, but is there not an issue with that naming and RedTube, and if so, how has it been resolved?

    Apart from the obvious RedTube prob lem someone's already noted. This will cost about the same as a Netflix account. Who on Earth would pay for most of the drivel on YouTube, compared with Netflix?

    Who on earth compares Netflix to Youtube in first place?
    At $4.99 this may have been a hit, double that - no chance

    When you take into account you get Play Music, Netflix style original content as well as the Youtube features, for the same price you pay for Spotify its really not that bad. I just hope Youtube will support casting to Chromecast Audio sometime soon, or with the release of the Youtube music app, as that's mainly what I play music off.

    If it didn't include play music it would be overly expensive but £9.99 is what you would pay for a streaming music service anyway. Getting no ads is good but not something I am particularly bothered about (unless they all become unskippable). Offline video would be very useful as well.
    No ads, offline access and screen off functionality is basically what google play music is anyway.

    Yeah agreed. If they didn't throw in Play Music it'd definitely not be worth it. Throw in some TV episodes, and maybe a premium version that removes ads from Play Store apps, maybe?

    Re: YouTube Red launches in US on 28th October, priced at $9.99 pm

    I'm confused, do they realize what you get for $10 from Netflix? MILLIONs of episodes/movies. So this is $10 for some music and crap original content (this isn't House of cards, Hemlock Grove, Orange/black etc stuff here). I don't see how this is interesting to anyone but music people and that makes it $3-4 tops. I can't even keep up with netflix additional content added monthly (more movies, new seasons of shows, more original stuff etc), let alone get to older shows with gobs of seasons etc. Maybe I'd see it different if they were announcing a dozen original shows LIKE House of Cards, Hemlock etc. They don't seem to understand reality TV died and REAL shows have taken back over. Witness all the new marvel, DC, sci-fi, dramas etc just starting up over the last few years. Kardashian type crap is pretty over (scare pewdiepie? whatever).
