YouTube’s recent tests, which included cramming more ads for free members and restricting viewing in 4K, have drawn a lot of complaints. Although Y has officially stopped these tests, the worse news is that the YouTube Premium family plan is about to increase in price!
according to《9to5google》According to reports, the YouTube Premium family plan will increase from $17.99 per month to $22.99, which is equivalent to a $5 increase, an increase of more than 25%. The official has sent an email to notify subscribers, and the new charging will start from November 21 in the next charging cycle, but did not specify the reason for the price increase.
At least eight countries around the world are among the first to increase, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan, Indonesia, Brazil, Turkey and Argentina. This time, it is only for the YouTube Premium family plan, and the personal plan remains the same.
- US: $17.99 -> $22.99
- Canada: CA$17.99 -> CA$22.99
- UK:: £17.99 -> £19.99
- Argentina: (Individual) ARS 119 -> ARS 389 | (Family) ARS 179 -> ARS 699
- Turkey: (Individual) 16.99 TRY -> 29.99 TRY
- Japan: ¥1,780 -> ¥2,280
YouTube has also confirmed the increase to the media, “We will not make this decision lightly and understand that it is not easy for members. The new price reflects the value of YouTube Premium and allows us to develop more new features.”
This is the first price increase since YouTube launched its Premium membership system in 2018. The outside world generally believes that the increase will not be limited to a small number of countries, and it is believed that it will gradually expand.
In addition to the above-mentioned countries, YouTube has not officially disclosed that other countries and regions will also increase prices. Whether Malaysia will be affected remains to be officially announced. For more technical information, please continue to hold the Urban Tech Story version!
