How to Subscribe to YouTube Premium (Formally YouTube Red)

-

|

This Itechguide teaches you how to subscribe to YouTube Red (Now called YouTube Premium). We all know YouTube as a free service but it now has a paid service called YouTube Premium.

The YouTube paid service is now called YouTube Premium. But because a number of people still refer to it as YouTube Red (the original name), I will use both names interchangeably throughout this guide.

This guide covers steps to subscribe to YouTube Red from your computer browser (YouTube.com) and from the YouTube App on Android.

How to Subscribe to YouTube Red from YouTube.com

You can subscribe to YouTube Premium from your browser (YouTube.com).

Here are the steps

  • Open YouTube.com on your favorite browser (I will use Google Chrome for this demo)
  • If you have logged in, click your user profile icon (highlighted below)

If you are not logged in to YouTube, you can login with your Gmail email address.
  • When you click your profile icon on the top right corner of YouTube, a pop down with more options will be displayed. From the pop down click Paid memberships.

For more subscription options, scroll down the page. You can subscribe to YouTube Premium Family or Student.
  • If you have added a payment method into your Google Account, it will be available. To subscribe, simply click BUY. Alternatively, you can add a new payment method.
  • When you click to add a new payment method, you will be offered options similar to the page below. Select your preferred payment method. For this demo, I will select PayPal.
  • Then click BUY.
Depending on the payment option you selected, the next screen may be different for you.
  • Once you have successfully authenticated your payment you will receive a confirmation screen similar to the one below.
Once you subscribe to YouTube Red (Premium) you can enjoy YouTube Videos ads-free. There are also other benefits.

These are the two available options to subscribe to YouTube red (Premium).

Your subscription qualifies you for a free trial period. At the end of the trial period you will be charged a monthly reoccurring fee. If you do not want to continue paying you can cancel YouTube Red (or Premium).
