The overall effect of YouTube Red on earnings remains to be seen, but we expect little disruption to creators’ incomes or CPMs. Even after YouTube Red launches, most YouTube views will likely still come from regular YouTube viewers who watch ads that fuel your AdSense income. If anything, most creators should see their channel income rise since a YouTube Red user paying $9.99/month is paying more on a per-view basis than a regular, free YouTube user.
