    YouTube TV includes YouTube Red's content and original shows, but it doesn't remove ads from regular YouTube videos.

    Yes, I have YTTV and see all the Red content.

    Would be nice if the ads got removed too. Now what about the other Red feature, the ability to play videos in the background? Can you do that? I LOVED that during my Red trial last year and still miss it. Comes in handy when listening to music. YouTube is THE best "music service" lol

    I've had YouTube Red since it started as part of my Play Music Subscription. I totally agree that it is THE best music service. Imagine that's why they are reportedly planning to have it take over the branding as Google's primary music service.

    I enjoy the Red originals, and Cobra Kai is the best so far. The background view is a wonderful extra, and I use it to listen to speeches and similar videos that don't really require the visuals to have impact. But I enjoy having Red not just for the content, or the ad-free, but also knowing that watching Ad Free I am still supporting the channels I am watching.

    If anyone on here is a creator, I'd love to know, without specifics if that is uncomfortable, if my ad-free views as a Red subscriber are better, worse, or about the same as they'd be as a free, ad-viewing viewer.

    I can only see the Red original stuff, like Cobra Kai. I was surprised there weren't any ads or commercials during it.

    Red is simply amazing, I really hate ads because I find them waste of my time. Glad there are options that allow us to feel more entertained with less ads.

    One of the things that annoys me is that the YouTube videos play when minimized, or when I task switch. I get that its a feature and SOMETIMES I would want it, BUT I would much rather it be a choice. When I minimize, I get asked IF I want the video to continue to play, there COULD be a setting for always in a checkbox. Hey a boy can dream! lol
