YouTube's subscription service, Red, has been out for a while now. Here's why you might want to sign up. Google's well aware that YouTube is a video powerhouse of viral hits, music videos and unique shows you cannot find anywhere else. Hoping to capitalize on its unstoppable success, Google created YouTube Red , a paid monthly subscription service with several perks that make your viewing experience better.
What is YouTube Red?
What do I get with it?
The service provides ad-free access to content across the service, as well as access to premium YouTube Originals programming produced in collaboration with the site's creators, downloading videos and background playback of videos on mobile devices, and access to the YouTube Music music streaming service. The service was originally launched in November as Music Key , offering only advertisement-free streaming of music videos from participating labels on YouTube and Google Play Music. YouTube announced the rebranding of the service as YouTube Premium on May 17, , alongside the return of a separate, YouTube Music subscription service. The service was first unveiled in November as Music Key, serving as a collaboration between YouTube and Google Play Music , and meant to succeed the former's own subscription service. Music Key offered ad-free playback of music videos from participating labels hosted on YouTube, as well as background and offline playback of music videos on mobile devices from within the YouTube app. The service also included access to Google Play Music All Access, which provides ad-free audio streaming of a library of music. During its invite-only beta, Music Key faced mixed reception due to the limited scope of the offering; YouTube's chief business officer Robert Kyncl explained that his daughter was confused over why videos of songs from Frozen were not "music" in the scope of the service, and thus not advertisement-free. This shift required YouTube to seek permission from its content creators and rights holders to allow their content to be part of the ad-free service; under the new contract terms, partners would receive a share of the total revenue from YouTube Red subscriptions, as determined by how much their content is viewed by subscribers. YouTube also sought to compete against sites such as Netflix , Prime Video and Hulu by offering original content YouTube Originals as part of the subscription service, leveraging prominent YouTube personalities in combination with professional producers. Robert Kyncl acknowledged that while many of YouTube's prominent personalities had built their followings and created content while operating on a "shoestring budget", he admitted that "in order to scale up, it takes a different kind of enterprise, a different kind of skill set" such as story-telling and "showrunning".

It just seems like I'm never on his mind unless I'm physically in front of him, and then he's sweet as can be. But, if ever were there were a time to be overly cautious it's with this topic. Would they have stayed in the church if dad was a member. I can only say that I was that girl, 10 years ago. However, I believe there are rules set, and we receive certain blessings when we obey said rules. Much of it rang true back when my spouse was in med school, internship and residency. Once she realizes you won't join and she can't get married in the temple, then I suspect everything will be over. Either you are just fun for now or she wants to change you.
