It now pops up as a little white box in the right had corner.

Simply states "Try ad free youtube red"

TRY IT FOR FREE | No thanks.

Now, I imagine it would be very easy for some people to hit the try it for free on impulse/ accident and forget they ever did it.


Here's the thing.

For a lot of people Youtube already has their billing info through Google play.

If they click that try it for free, Youtube will automatically sign them up for a Youtube Red sub after the free version is over, unless they changed it up to avoid criticism, but I'm not clicking it to find out.

    in order to get any 'free' trial, you gotta put your billing information in and it tells you it will bill you after the trial or just to cancel before

    pretty much everyone should know this and if they don't, nothing can happen legally because of the warning they do give

    I do this all the time and a week before the trial ends, I mark it on my calander and it pops up as a reminder to cancel

    I noticed that too.



    What's worse, is they even have discretion over whether or not they'll pay for whatever content they put up.



    Granted, it depends on profanity and a few other factors (don't remember the specifics)...........but it's borderline censorship.



    I think it has something to do with advertisers not willing to put ads on anything with profanity or "questionable" content.



    Thing is...........who defines what's questionable and what isn't?



    Totally subjective.
