The service was originally launched in November 2014 as Music Key, offering only ad-free streaming of music and music videos from participating labels on YouTube and Google Play Music. The service was then revised and relaunched as YouTube Red on October 31, 2015, expanding its scope to offer ad-free access to all YouTube videos, as opposed to just music.
In addition to ad-free streaming, YouTube Red has also participated with major networks and certain YouTube celebrities to offer “YouTube Red Originals”, which are movies and shows exclusive to Red members. Access to this content is included with a YouTube Red subscription, but individual episodes and movies can be purchased through YouTube or Google Play Movies & TV in certain countries where subscriptions are not yet available.
A YouTube Red subscription allows users to watch videos on YouTube without advertisements across the website and its mobile apps, including the dedicated YouTube Music, YouTube Gaming, and YouTube Kids apps. Through the apps, users can also save videos to their device for offline viewing, play them in the background, and in picture-in-picture mode on Android Oreo. YouTube Red also offers original content that is exclusive to subscribers, which is created and published by YouTube’s largest creators. The service also offers ad-free music streaming through the Google Play Music‘s All Access service.
