How to Subscribe to YouTube Premium (Formally YouTube Red)

-

|

Introduction

This guide demos 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.

Options to Subscribe to YouTube Red

This guide offers 2 options to subscribe to YouTube Red:

  1. From your computer browser (YouTube.com)
  2. Subscribe from YouTube App on Android
