YouTube Ads are annoying to most people. Hence, YouTube does have a Premium membership where you do not face ads and can watch your content without any interruptions. The premium membership also has other benefits like the ability to run YouTube in the background and implement an Audio-Only mode where you can only stream the audio of the clip while in other apps.
