As of today, YouTube will show ads for all videos in the U.S. So they mean it absolutely all videos, including those whose authors do not add them there.

YouTube will show ads on all videos
Creators who do not want to lose profits will need to register for the affiliate program. To register, the author needs to collect 12 consecutive months of at least 4,000 hours of follow-up and had more than 1,000 subscribers. It’s not that scary and for authors who publish their content regularly it won’t be a problem. This one “news” in addition to the United States, it should be extended to all countries of the world, including the Czech Republic.
Advertising is mostly big business for Google. She made money on them in the last quarter over $ 5 billion, there will be a lot more now.
