What is YouTube Premium?

YouTube Premium is a paid subscription for videos and music. With Premium, you get virtually unlimited access to a YouTube Music Premium membership – ad-free, downloadable and available offline. You also have access to great features on YouTube’s other platforms. For example, YouTube does not come with ads. You have access to YouTube’s original content and can download YouTube videos to watch offline or at a later time.

How much does a YouTube Premium subscription cost?

There are different YouTube Premium subscriptions available. When you first start using the service, you can try it for free for one month. After that, you will need to choose a subscription if you want to continue using the service.

YouTube Premium

A standard subscription to YouTube Premium costs $11.99 per month for an individual to use the account. Watch YouTube videos without interruption from ads on mobile, desktop or YouTube-enabled TVs. Download videos to watch offline, use YouTube Music and benefit from Background Play, which lets you play YouTube videos in the background when you open another app.

YouTube Premium (annual)

With an annual subscription, you get everything included in the YouTube Premium subscription at a lower price. A YouTube Premium annual subscription costs $119.99 per year, and the subscription does not automatically renew at the end of your current billing cycle.
