YouTube is going to charge more to see ad-free shows like ‘Cobra Kai’

YouTube is getting ready to a launch a new version of its music service — and at the same time it is getting ready to charge more to see originals shows like a “Karate Kid” spinoff.

Background: Two years ago, YouTube launched YouTube Red, a service that gave subscribers an on-demand music service, more or less similar to Spotify or Apple Music — as well as access to original programming created just for the service. YouTube Red also removed ads from the world’s largest video service.

All of that cost $10. But now that’s changing.

Next week, YouTube is launching YouTube Music — a revamped version of its existing music service that is functionally the same, but comes with extra bells and whistles like personalized playlists based on your YouTube history and other usage patterns.

That service, which is supposed to soft-launch on Tuesday, will cost $10 a month after a trial period. (That same service will eventually also replace Google Play Music, a rival music service Google has inexplicably operated at the same time it was trying to get YouTube Music off the ground.)

Now YouTube intends to charge $2 more for the other parts of YouTube Red, which will be renamed YouTube Premium — but will require you to also pay for YouTube Music.

That is: If you want to watch ad-free, YouTube original shows like “Cobra Kai,” which appears to have a bit of buzz and four million views, you’re now going to have pay $12 a month, instead of $10 a month.

More detail: YouTube Music’s $10 a month removes ads from music videos – but not the rest of YouTube. It also allows you to download music for offline listening, and to play music in the background while you do
