Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Youtube is announcing an ad-free paid subscription option for its users. Discuss here if you think people would be willing to pay to forego the ads, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

It's just too bad that the focus is on making money on everything these days. Why can't we have web sites that are just for entertainment, period. I know we all need money to exist in this world, but it's gotten real carried away. The internet is like a huge billboard anymore, and has been for years. It's too bad money is the focus of almost anything these days. Smart phones, smart appliances, smart tv's, but a very serious shortage of smart people, lol.

I suspect most would just put up with the ads - after all, nobody can make you watch or listen to them.

I wonder if it might be the end of third party YouTube ad-blockers though.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I don't think I would go there as often. And I really don't go there that often. I have cable, Netflix, Xbox Live, Hulu can be had for free, and the internet in general. I had Hulu Plus, but its just one more bill. And there is not enough free time in the day to justify it all.

Another Paywall oh no. Read story below for some interesting facts about YouTubes subscription service (a.k.a. YouTubes Red paywall subscription service)

On a similar vein, here in the UK, I use Yahoo Mail.

Back in 2011 Yahoo announced Mail Plus @ £1 a month offering an ad free service plus extra storage etc.

I opted for it then, and ever since found it worthwhile, e.g.providing a full width screen etc.

However I understand the service has been renamed Ad Free Mail and the charge increased substantially for new subscribers. In fact today am unable to find details for it on the Yahoo UK help pages, as strangly they provide details and prices for the USA version.

I would not pay same on Youtube as I do not find the adverts a problem when using, and some are quite entertaining. e.g.

Enjoy!

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
