The nominee are:

This is a huge boost for YouTube Red, which has spent its life veering between moderate success and knocking at death's door. The premium video series, which is not yet available in the UK, but may be soon, offers a variety of original programming, as well as ad-free video, as part of its monthly subscription model.
