In 2015 when Google-owned YouTube started a subscription service and named it YouTube red, the comparisons to RedTube immediately began.
YouTube executives didn’t seem overly concerned at the time, even saying as much in an interview with the Wrap in October of 2015.
But fast forward a few years later and while the YouTube Red subscription service continues to struggle to find its footing, RedTube has only grown in popularity. It’s now the 192nd most popular website in the world.
Fast forward a few years later and YouTube Red has renamed itself to YouTube Premium.
Now I guess they can avoid all the hilarious comparisons to RedTube.
