YouTube Premium

Do you know what YouTube premium is? Just as the name implies, premium, it simply is a subscription based YouTube feature. Normally this feature is for those users who are fed up with YouTube ads. YouTube is a great platform and all. And if you have made use of the platform before you would agree with me. But one thing I hate about the platform is the ads. Imagine going through a two to five minutes video and watching ads every minute of the way? It’s not only tiring, but it’s also annoying. Users have been complaining about this, but the thing is that since YouTube is a free platform, that is the only way they generate revenue. They (YouTube) have however come up with a solution to this and that is the YouTube premium feature.

Users will have to pay a fee in order to not see ads on their screen or get interrupted by ad whenever they stream videos on the platform. With the YouTube premium feature you don’t just enjoy your contents ads free but you also get access to YouTube originals programs, download videos and so much more. When you subscribe to the feature you get a free trial of one month and after that you start paying. You get notified 7 days before your subscription ends. And guess what you can cancel your subscription at any time. To subscribe to this YouTube feature formerly known as YouTube red, go here.
