YouTube Red & support for creators
As a YouTube Red member, you can enjoy premium benefits, like ad-free videos, while still supporting your favorite YouTube creators.
How YouTube Red supports creators
Creators are the heart and soul of YouTube. To ensure they're compensated for their work, we share ad revenue with them when you watch ads on YouTube. If you're a YouTube Red member, you won't see ads, so we share your monthly membership fee with creators. Best of all, the more videos you watch from your favorite creators, the more money they make.
Cost for premium features
Like other paid membership services, YouTube Red gives you the option to pay for a bundle of premium features on YouTube. We want you to get great value for your membership, so we've included benefits like background play, access to YouTube Red Originals, and the option to download videos to watch offline. This allows you to amplify your YouTube experience while ensuring creators continue to be compensated for their content — everybody wins!
