From http://gizmodo.com/youtubers-are-up-in-arms-about-youtube-red-1738022087

"the company says it will give YouTube Red partners a majority of the subscription revenue they bring in. YouTube hasn’t specified the exact amount, but it will be based on your watch time."

Reading this literally -- downloaded content has no "watch time" ... and therefore would not garner payment for the content creators.
