The YouTube paid service should arrive also in Europe, and therefore in Italy, by the end of the year. The Telegraph
By the end of the year, YouTube could become a pay service. But don't worry, you'll be able to keep watching videos of your favorite channels without having to pay a single euro. The news will only affect users who want to subscribe to YouTube Red.
Since 2015, the streaming video platform has launched in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea YouTube Red, a paid service that allows you to enjoy special content and watch videos without the hassle of advertising. Until now, the service was limited to these four nations, but according to the online edition of the Telegraph, the Google-owned company could bring YouTube Red to Europe by the end of the year. YouTube would find an evolving market after the arrival in 2016 of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
What YouTube Red offers
Among the nations that will be touched by the arrival of YouTube Red will surely be Italy. With the new service, Italian users will be able to have exclusive content (YouTube is trying to launch a hundred new online channels, hoping to become an online broadcaster and transform its business) and watch videos of their favorite singers without the interruption of advertising. In addition, you will have the functionality of Google Play Music. At the moment on the price of the monthly subscription there is still no information, but it is very likely that it will be 9.99 euros.
