    Well, that's a wishful thinking for me though. From what I remember, paid-advertising is where these media get their profit/income and the reason why we can still enjoy using the app/site for free. Just like Spotify, you can pay the full subscription so you don't have to skip ads all the time.

    That was 2016, now they give you two ads, plus de-ranking whatever they don't like.

    Don't be evil, sure.

    I used adblock. so I dont see YT ads, but now you get paid infomercials and segue from the content itself for rubbish services like nord vpn.

    watch this video to find out why VPN is useless. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVDQEoe6ZWY

    If Apple could find a way to give us their version of YT but the cream of the crop as a component of Apple TV Plus that would be awesome. 

    Rather than advertising  there would be the ability for sponsorships and because Apple TV Plus is a paid service a bit of profit sharing.   Apple’s competitor would be more curated ...not in bubbling stuff up to top but rather focusing on key areas that are not problematic.   Tech Reviews are always going to be popular,  Movie reviews.  Gaming discussion etc.   Content would be curated in that offensive content would not make it.   

    A good start would be Apple acquiring Vimeo.

    I mostly watch YouTube on my AppleTV so that isn't an option.

    Yes, I wish 1Blocker was available on the AppleTV and could work on apps too.  For now I just stream from Safari on my Mac or Safari on my iPad because the ads are indeed beyond ridiculous.
