YouTube star PewDiePie is losing 40% of his potential revenue to ad-blockers – Business Insider

YouTube's got a new service aimed at competing with the likes of Netflix, Hulu Plus, and other popular paid streaming services. It's called "YouTube Red," and it's $10/month. For that monthly fee, you get access to the same YouTube as everyone else — except there's on major bonus: no advertisements! There are also some original shows coming next year, sure, but the real selling point here is dropping advertisements on YouTube.
