Youtube Strikes!

If you are a lover of Japanese music and located in the United States, we have got some bad news for you. Recently a post by an anonymous user revealed that some of the international fans of the Japanese music were unable to stream the music videos because they had been removed by Youtube, citing the ads-sponsorship issues.

While the issue itself was controversial, some users went on to lament Youtube for turning greedy for a few bucks. But as pointed out by some fans, Youtube took a strong step because the users were using ads-blocking software to skip the ads (Youtube’s primary source of income). The list of the channels has been uploaded which are currently blocked in the United States. This screenshot will help you know about the channels that have been barred from operating in United States.

Alternate Solution – Youtube ‘Red’ for $9.99/month

The Youtube ‘Red’ is currently available in the United States and has the copyrighted videos of Japanese music that are otherwise blocked on free Youtube.
