Meet YouTube Red, The Ultimate YouTube Experience – Or NOT?

Google has launched the new YouTube Red ad-free subscription service in the United States. YouTue Red allows you to enjoy your favorite YouTube videos without ads. It also allows those who sign up and pay for the service ($9.99 a month) to save videos to watch offline on smart phones, tablets and other devices. The videos can also be played in the background. Although it’s priced at $9.99 a month, YouTube Red comes with a one-month free trial so users can try it before they start paying for it. Google has announced their future plans for YouTube Red to feature new original shows, movies and content created by “…some of YouTube’s biggest creators.” For more information on the “YouTube Red Original Series” please visit YouTube’s official blog.

You are correct! You can do away by using tools like Xposed, YouTube Adblock, YouTube background playback modules, Tubemate etc. But remember that the majority of YouTube users, and we all know that there are millions of them, will not go through the troubles of “hacking” their way. They will either accept the ads or pay for the new service if they can afford it.

Sure, we already have portable computing devices such as tablets, smartphones and even the Raspberry Pi computer, but Solu founder Kristoffer Lawson wants to take it a step further.

Solu can operate as a standalone device, much like a smartphone, or connect to an external display and keyboard for broader range of functions.
