Have you noticed that you’re having to crawl through more and more ads when you watch YouTube?
You’re not the only one. Some blogs have begun calling it AdTube.
But there is a way to get around the ads, for free, for a little while.
Free YouTube Premium Trial
YouTube is currently offering a free one month trial of YouTube Premium to new members.
The free trial can be cancelled at any point during the trial period with no further commitment.
Google says they will send you an alert a week before they begin billing.
YouTube Premium Benefits
With YouTube Premium, the primary benefit is that you can watch YouTube videos without the Google pushed ads.
YouTube video creators can still include ads in their content, so you may still see those depending on the videos you watch.
You will also be able to download videos for offline viewing for up to 30 days.
The free trial membership includes ad-free access to YouTube Music Premium as well.
YouTube Premium – Ongoing Subscription Costs
After the trial, individual subscribers that keep the subscription are billed $11.99 per month.
YouTube offers a family plan for $17.99/month, the family plan includes up to 5 members and live in the same household.
And they have a student plan for $6.99/month, to be eligible you have to be a full-time college student.
Time is money, so if you’re a rabid YouTube fan, Google’s got you over a barrel. You either pay up… or spend more and more time trying to get through the ads.
At least you can get this first month free.
The free YouTube Premium trial is available here: https://www.youtube.com/premium.
Tip: Set A Reminder
Google says they will send you an email 7 days before they start billing. BUT… Consumer Press recommends also setting a reminder on your Google Calendar/Apple Calendar, just in case.
