YouTube Plans to Offer Paid Subscriptions to Skip Ads

You may be able to skip commercials on the huge video-sharing website.

The video-sharing service, currently in 75 countries and available in 61 languages, is planning to offer a paid subscription model that will allow customers to skip some ads.

YouTube notified a large group of partners that the company is updating its terms to allow partners to receive revenue from subscription offerings, Bloomberg reported. But the company maintains that its ads business is still its core. Creators could potentially make more money, along with YouTube, by profiting from these subscriptions. The time frame and pricing have yet to be decided, the company said, though it may involve a monthly fee.

A YouTube spokesperson told ABC News, "While we can't comment on ongoing discussions, giving fans more choice to enjoy the content they love and creators more opportunity to earn revenue are always amongst our top priorities."
