The profound rantings of the one like Tom Atkinson… and now art gallery and shop.

Dear Google, please let me pay to remove ads on Youtube

I'd like to be able to load up by Youtube account with some prepay credit, and then allow this to bleed out to Google at the eCPM rate for the video and my demographic in question.

So if I watch videos that don't earn much for Google from CPC click throughs I could watch for a long time before my credit expires, versus high quality content that may have higher value ads and earnings using up more of my credit faster.

Perhaps the rate could be a discount on the actual eCPM to play fair. Another idea could be to provide a link under the clip which shows which ads were suppressed and how much you just paid to suppress them.

Saves having to install an ad blocker on every machine I use, and when I'm logged in, I can enjoy watching Youtube like I can with Spotify Premium - no ads.

I'd call it PPP payment - pay per peace. They'll probably call it Youtube Premium like Spotify did. Actually I just checked and Youtube does have a bunch of "premium channels". Note quite my idea tho.
