Youtube subscription
« on: September 23, 2020, 04:03:01 PM »

My wife bought me a monthly subscription to Youtube, so I get an account which gives me advert-free viewing and the ability to download videos. I download videos in the night when itís cheap and watch them in the daytime. Iím loving it; itís hellishly expensive though, something like £20 per month  :'(  but you can get a family membership thing which will allow both me and my wife to access content - canít remember what the cost of that is, but itís either the same as an individual account or thereís a very small additional cost.

Iíve been watching various physics lectures which infuriate my wife, but there is a wonderful variety of music so she can forgive me later.

And Somhairle and Beileag still howl for their kitten treats (so-called ĎNum-Numsí) regardless.

If you buy it via the Indian store it costs only £2 a month or something like that (VPN)

The £20 one you have bought sounds like you have the music included,  video only might be £8 in the UK

I also love YouTube but the adverts are much more intrusive and annoying these days ......    I understand completely why you subscribed but personaly can't bring myself to pay to watch it, with the ads and the politically biased  censorship by Google I feel like the door is sneaking open for a competitor (in China maybe?)

Premium is £11.99 for normal humans or £6.99 for students, I do not believe there is a video-only option.

I just don't think its worth it when it costs as much as Netflix 4K and I can already easily download videos for free using opensource tools (youtube-dl).

The price is ridiculous but my beloved urged me to go for it given that I love the lectures so much. I have about 150 lectures and other videos downloaded.

No idea how you ended up at a frankly absurd £20 a month, but I've just read in my magazine that you can get YouTube Music premium for £9.99 and upgrade to full YouTube premium for add free videos for another £2 a month.
