YouTube Reportedly Increasing Ads Before Music Videos to Encourage Paid Subscriptions

Both asapSCIENCE and Smarter Every Day have expressed interest helping with the initiative, according to a rep, and more information is expected to be released in the coming months prior to the program's launch. "PornHub has a history of being a proactive voice in the online community, as well as operating a resilient and robust video streaming platform".

With YouTube Gaming being a direct competitor to common broadcasting services such as Twitch, Google is definitely trying to make it easier for users to livestream content on its platform. One thing of note in the 9to5Google article, is that they are unsure if this feature is restricted only to YouTube Red subscription holders at this time.

But, why would people pay for music when they can already listen to it for free?

Spike's Tactical argues YouTube banned their channel without prior warning, catching the company, customers and fans completely off guard.

"You're not going to be happy after you are jamming "Stairway to Heaven" and you get an ad right after that," Cohen said. With the service's success, it hopes that major labels will finally become "good partners" with major labels. "This is really bad", wrote Full30, a gun video publisher.

In fact, Cohen remains so confident that the music service will succeed, he added that the music industry may finally learn to appreciate YouTube. "Everyone is drunk on the growth of subscription".

The streaming service is making the policy change a month after the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people.Last October, YouTube also banned videos that showed viewers how to install bump stocks, a gun attachment that can make a semiautomatic rifle fire faster.

YouTube is rolling out a strategy to try and fight fake news and misinformation in videos published to the site. Just look at Spotify, the global streaming music leader. A current search on the site for "how to build a gun" yields 25 million results, though that includes items such as toys. A company using the service is only charged when the ads are engaged. However, that's in line with the low-end of buying airtime for a 30-second local TV ad, which ranges from $200 to $1,500+, depending on time slot. The YouTube Director onsite website also features a number of other ads created via the service, to showcase the professional quality of what can be produced.
