Yes! YouTube will share YouTube Red income with creators just as it currently shares AdSense income. YouTube will total up all the income it sees from YouTube Red and divide that among creators based on each creator’s share of total minutes watched by YouTube Red users. (The only exception to this is music videos, which will be paid based on share of views, not share of watch time.) But for most creators, watch time is now even more important than ever.
