YouTube Red officially launched this week, with a one month free trial now available to users in the U.S.
There’s been a lot of concern and confusion from YouTube creators over how this dramatic change to the video-sharing website will affect video revenue. Fortunately, YouTube has released a statement on its official blog to help clear up some confusion.
First of all, video-makers will be pleased to know that they will receive revenue from YouTube Red during the free trial period. There were concerns leading up to the launch of Red that YouTubers wouldn’t be paid during trials, which would have had a massive impact on revenue.
