YouTube has more and more advertising, but with a Premium subscription you get rid of that. Can you get cheap YouTube Premium via VPN?
Read on after the ad.
YouTube Premium via VPN: mag dat?
If you watch a lot of YouTube, you will also see a lot of advertisements. That’s getting worse. For example, YouTube recently introduced a 30-second ad for televisions that you can’t skip.
Of course, Google hopes that more people will subscribe to YouTube Premium. With this subscription, all advertisements are removed, among other things.
How much does a subscription to YouTube Premium cost?
YouTube Premium comes in several forms. YouTube Premium Lite removes all ads. With normal Premium you also get the option to watch videos offline and in the background, and use YouTube Music, among other things.
You have YouTube Premium Lite for 6.99 euros per month. If you want the full version of YouTube Premium, it will cost you 11.99 euros per month.
Why is a subscription cheaper via a VPN?
Many people use a trick to get a cheaper subscription to YouTube Premium. They use a VPN for that. With a VPN, you can pretend you’re going online anywhere else in the world.
In some countries, YouTube Premium is much cheaper than here. For example, in Argentina, YouTube Premium Lite costs just over 2 euros per month. If you set your VPN to Argentina, Google will think you live there and will present that country’s offer.
You do not always have to have the VPN on to use YouTube Premium. This is only necessary to take out the subscription. You can then simply disable the VPN and continue using YouTube Premium.
Is this illegal?
Using a VPN to subscribe to YouTube Premium abroad is not illegal.
Is this allowed by Google?
While it’s not illegal to get a cheaper YouTube Premium subscription through a VPN abroad, it’s against the terms of service you’ve agreed to.
Once you create a Google account, you agree to the terms and conditions for that account. These conditions state:
“You agree that you will not provide false, inaccurate or misleading information in an attempt to misrepresent your country of residence and that you will not seek to restrict access to or availability of the Paid Services or content within the bypass paid services.”
So if you do use a VPN to take out YouTube Premium cheaply, you are going against these conditions.
What could be the consequences?
If Google notices that you have performed this trick, the company may suspend your account. If you also use this account for your email, documents, storage and more, you can theoretically lose it all. Using a VPN to avoid high costs is therefore not without risk.
