Some gaming videos are getting blocked in the United States due to YouTube Red – Destructoid

So that brings us to what YouTube says in its notice:

“You may have heard that we recently announced YouTube Red – a new membership that offers fans more choice in how they watch their favorite videos with features like ad-free, background and offline viewing for a monthly fee. In order to deliver a great experience for fans who choose to pay for this offering, we are updating our contracts with all of our content partners. The new terms make it possible for us to share subscription revenues with creators, providing an additional revenue stream for them beyond ad-supported YouTube revenue. The overwhelming majority of videos on YouTube are accounted for in our agreements, but there are some partners who have asked for more time to think about their options. While we work with these partners to update their terms, we unfortunately can’t make their claimed videos available in the US.”

So, to simplify that, certain publishers haven’t yet agreed to YouTube Red’s terms and thus YouTube is preventing videos of their games from being played in the United States. And since all the details of the agreements aren’t available to the public, it’s difficult to place blame directly here.
