Default YouTube Red. Worth paying for?

So many of us have heard of YouTube Red by now, and if you haven't see the video below.

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YL9RetC0ook[/ame]

Their three main premium features are a bit ridiculous. I just want to point out that all three of these features are already possible.

Ad-Free? Easy as downloading Ad-Block Plus, whether you're on PC or Android [root needed].
Background Play? Well that's obviously easy on PC, and with a rooted android you can easily emulate it being in the foreground. The battery cost of running two foreground apps is pretty high though (not enough to phase me).
Download for later? Yes, that too, even after years of controversy.



Yet, it's ******... I'll most likely be paying for it anyways...

Too expensive. I think they'd reach a lot more people if they made it like $1 a month instead of $10. I despise subscription services because the amount you pay is the same for everyone regardless of what is actually consumed. Someone who no-lifes 12 hours a day pays the same amount as someone who watches 1 hour a day.

It won't work out the way they expect.
And they can't pull out AdBlock from Chrome either, because people will switch to Firefox or Opera.
If you only use YouTube with a tablet or phone, then I guess there's a reason for you to pay (not sure if strong enough).
Otherwise, Adblock rules the great sea.

I don't see the appeal to be honest. And coming from a company as large and innovative as ******, I expected more.

YouTube is so successful because it's free. Paying for some extra pretty useless functions is not worth it.

Well, to be fair, I'm always using ****** Play Music because I like it's way of handling local files better than Spotify's, and because of that I get YouTube Red for free. (Buy one, get the other as well)

I'm not really going for it because of the extra content, but maybe they'll positively surprise me with the music features.
