YouTube will soon offer subscription service to allow users to access exclusive videos

According to a Recode report, Google-owned video-sharing site YouTube will soon start offering an ad-free subscription service which will give users the ability to access exclusive programming.

Revealing that YouTube has efforts underway to make new bulk of videos available to paid subscribers, the Recode report said that some of the content which will be made available to subscribers will be announced by YouTube at an event scheduled to be held in Los Angeles on October 21.

The forthcoming YouTube subscription service including exclusive videos has been in works for quite some time now. With regard to the imminent availability of the subscription service, YouTube had said last year that it would "fund new content from some of [its] top creators."

Later, over the summer, YouTube implicitly confirmed its plans for an ad-free subscription service when it sent an email to producers of top video content.

The ad-free subscription service from YouTube was originally expected to be available by October-end, but its launch has apparently been delayed to 2016. The cost of the subscription service, and its launch date, has not yet been officially disclosed by YouTube.
