YouTube just installed an ad blocker, but this time it is set to make money out of it. Welcome to YouTube Red, the advanced, ad free, payable version of YouTube (currently unavailable in many parts of the world). At $9.99 a month, subscribers will get to watch ad free content on the portal, subscription to live streaming music service, Play Music, and YouTube is also developing exclusive content for YouTube Red users.
