So finally youtube has launched the 10 seconds ads on most of its partner channels which are viewable to US/UK visitors, pissing almost every youtube viewer. Lets be honest, no one like “on your face” ads on embedded videos. They are irritating and are universally hated.
I think its a good time to launch youtube premium service, lets charge $5/per month to view youtube without any ads (I don’t think anyone of them is clicking on them anyway) along with some more services and features (to make $5 look justifiable and people also feel special that they have something which others don’t).
Even if 1 million people opt for it, here is your 5 million USD per month (that million subscribers can easily be achieved in a period of 12 months imo)
