YouTube Red Premium

YouTube Red is getting a new name. The service will now be known as YouTube Premium, and will include the new “YouTube Music” offering. YouTube Music is an ad-free music streaming service with a mobile app and desktop player. YouTube Premium subscribers will continue to have access to all YouTube Originals as well as original series from around the globe. The service will roll out soon to existing markets in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea, with new markets such as Canada and Germany being added in the coming days. YouTube Premium will be offered at $11.99/month, or subscribers can choose to only subscribe to YouTube Music for $9.99/month. Current YouTube Red members will automatically receive access to YouTube Premium for their rate now of $9.99/month.
