    This works out as around £144 year. That is around the cost of an Amazon Prime subscription,which also includes Prime Video and Twitch Prime where you get free games and freebies,and the cost of a yearly standard Netflix subscription.

    Also,regarding normal YouTube,if they want to close off music videos off with a massive paywall,it means its actually worse for many artists(especially not the big ones),since at least in my case I have had a look at bands and artists I would have never bothered to look at otherwise and bought their music. I would assume its the case for many people.

    However,other alternatives like Bandcamp exist and at least the artists get more of the revenue AFAIK.

    its all very confusing as who gets what. plus theres MCN fees and other fees to worry about too. you wont know until a few months time when they start paying people for this months views.
    This is what I was interested in, so looks like I am much better off sticking with Patreon. NerdCubed has stated that he gets more from Patreon and Twitch now than YouTube.

    That's a good point. With the Twitch Prime sub, I believe you can still support the creators you regularly watch, albeit once every few months if you are spreading it around.

    Re: YouTube Premium launches in the UK for £11.99 per month

    I am not in the slightest bit interested in add free music videos on youtube - which this is clearly for - but I would happily pay £2-£3 a month to remove adds on the other videos I do watch/subscribe to...hell even a twitch style system where I could sub to a creator and give them a small fee to just remove adds on their own videos as there are only 2-3 people I really watch regularly.

    as it stands at £11.99 a month its crazy expensive and i'll just put up with the ads.

    BBC might have ads because youtube are making it difficult for channels to choose to be ad free, see Blender foundation's problems when they refused ads:

    [edit]appears youtube have now allowed them to remainad-free ... but this has been going on since December....

    Google need to sort out their issues with Amazon and Microsoft first. The Amazon Fire Youtube app has been withdrawn, and I think there's still no official Youtubue Windows 10 app. So this is a very limited service, clearly targetted at Android and Google home devices. Surprise surprise.

    My in built adfilter takes care of most of those! I find my brain is pretty effective at ignoring the content of ads until the skip option appears! It’s a pity the ad isn’t long enough to allow the kettle to boil though!

    Same reason you need one to get it on Android - "Because, Apps"?

    Re: YouTube Premium launches in the UK for £11.99 per month

    I find it bizarre that some of the best commercial minds in the world got together, looked at their offering, looked at the market and said, "£11.99, yeah that sounds spot on, we'll definitely compete with the big boys in modern online media by charging more than them with barely any real user-end perks or promise for consistent quality content"

    You want to support a creator; drop them a dollar or two via patreon, buy a product through their store, or utilise their affiliate links.
