YouTube Premium | Reasons You Should Pay for YouTube Premium: Heard of YouTube Premium (formerly YouTube Red), but wonder if it’s worth the $11.99 a month subscription? Ok, it offers you the best version of the streaming service, I would argue. And while I’m sure someone’s thinking, “Hey! YouTube is already free, why should I pay?” I have five solid reasons why you’re ready to sign up today.
Realize this before you even think about the fee. Google provides a 1-month free trial to kick the tires for potential users. So, let’s dig into why today you are expected to sign up for YouTube Premium.
Note also that students do not pay the full amount (just like on Spotify and Apple Music). Students actually pay $6.99 a month, which is a $5 discount.
Reasons You Should Pay for YouTube Premium
Without the commercials, YouTube is so much better!
If you’re like me and the other billion-plus YouTube video watchers, you’ve come to rely on the service as a super-channel on your schedule that offers an extremely wide range of content. It goes above and beyond that in my experience, delivering extremely well-targeted suggestions, a skill every other service tried to impress me with and failed.
YouTube Premium is an 11.99 a month subscription that provides exclusive content from big YouTubers for those who skipped the shockingly limited amount of promotion Google gave it. Google also offers its music services with free updates (as detailed below).
Most notably, though, YouTube Premium allows you to watch all the YouTube you want, without ever seeing a single goddamn commercial. This means no advertisements, including those for your SmartTV, set-top box, and smartphone, on all YouTube applications.
In a broad sense, I don’t hate advertisements, but if there is an appropriate way to pay them off? Just to never have to see a dull and uninspired Geico ad again, I’ll do that.
This way, for your next dance break, you can keep a couple of your favorite music videos on hand or do what I do, and save the video versions of your favorite podcasts at home, so you’re not only limited to on-the-go versions of the audio.

You can get free YouTube Music Premium and Google Play Music.
By subscribing to it, I did not get YouTube Premium, but rather via my current Google Play Music subscription, the least-buzzed-about Spotify rival, which is just as good as the industry leader or Apple Music. That’s right, all subscribers to Google Play Music get YouTube Premium, and all subscribers of Premium get Google Play Music — and YouTube Music Premium.
Just as many songs as Spotify are provided by the Google Play Music library, plus it provides a cloud locker service, so MP3 collectors can access their rarities with up to 50,000 uploads anywhere. However, like Google Play Music’s newly added podcasts, the service is not limited to only albums, so you can cram all of your listening needs into a single app.
Google is currently aiming to close the gap in the near future between YouTube Premium and Google Play Music. Lyor Cohen, YouTube’s head of music, told audiences during a panel session for the New Music Seminar conference in New York that the company is looking at “combining YouTube Premium and Google Play Music, and having one offering,” addressing a query about the company’s ambitions to raise the popularity of the Premium service.
Without worry, you can toggle between applications
The odds still favor a notification that pops up on my computer that draws me into my inbox, my Twitter mentions, or my texts while I’m using only my smartphone or my tablet. Videos stop playing without YouTube Premium if I turn to another app.
Now that I use YouTube Premium, if I’m OK with just listening to the sound of a video, as I write a reply, it will continue to play in the background. This also comes in handy with mobile games with background music that I’m not fond of, as I can mute the game and instead have YouTube blasting sound.
