In the world of subscription services, there are a lot of options. There’s Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Spotify, Apple Music and a bunch of others that offer a variety of content for a handful of dollars a month. YouTube has been expanding its suite of offerings too, and it now includes a service called YouTube Premium. This service offers a couple of benefits over free YouTube, but what is it exactly and is it worth it?
The big thing that comes with a YouTube Premium membership is ad-free viewing. Ads are the primary way YouTube monetizes its video content, but they can be distracting and annoying. Premium subscribers do not have to see ads when watching videos on YouTube, as well as on the YouTube Music app.
YouTube Premium also allows users to download videos for offline playback on their phones. This is a great feature for anyone who has a limited data plan or commutes that take them to places with bad cell signal. It’s important to note, though, that these downloaded videos will not work unless you are logged in and watching them on a phone that is connected to the internet.
YouTube Premium is a worthwhile option for people who are big fans of creators on the platform. But, like any streaming service, it’s not right for everyone. The 50/30/20 budgeting model is a great tool to help people manage their needs, save money and leave room for “wants” like YouTube Premium. يوتيوب بريميوم
