According a report from Gizmochia, the future of YouTube will probably be a very advertising-filled one for those who don't already pay for the premium version.

The current standard is that users usually need to watch one to two clips, but right now the streaming service is testing the ability to show up to five commercials before a clip. In other words, it's a real advertising mess and hardly something many users will be particularly happy about.
