In the world of endless subscription services there are Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Spotify and Apple Music — all of which have their share of devoted fans. But one service that doesn’t always get much love is YouTube Premium, which combines ad-free video viewing with a solid music streaming offering.
Launched half a decade ago as YouTube Red and then rebranded as a bundle of both YouTube and YouTube Music, the service offers a number of perks that are worth paying for if you’re a big user of the platform. YouTube Premium removes ads (while still supporting creators), lets you download videos for offline access, supports 1080p premium quality on mobile and TVs, and adds other features like co-watching in Google Meet and background play on music.
The service hasn’t exploded in popularity, however, and that could be partly because it’s not cheap. At $14 per month for an individual or $23 for a family plan, it’s more expensive than other paid offerings like Netflix and Hulu. Whether or not that’s enough to convince you is up to you.
If you’re interested in trying out the service, you can now sign up for an annual YouTube Premium or YouTube Music plan by visiting the respective apps on iOS or Android and tapping the profile icon at the top of the screen. Those with existing monthly subscriptions will have to cancel and then re-enroll before they can access the annual plans. اشتراك يوتيوب بريميوم سنة
