YouTube is shuffling the deck on its paid tiers of video and music streaming. Announced today, YouTube Premium will take over for the soon to be phased out YouTube Red, but it’s essentially going to be the same service. Users get ad-free playback of everything on YouTube, plus access to a growing list of original series. Premium subscribers also get the new YouTube Music, a plan similar to Spotify and Apple Music.
For 12 bucks a month it’s a pretty good deal, considering YouTube Music by itself is 10. YouTube Red subscribers will get the new YouTube Premium at their current price of just 10 dollars a month, because, really this is just a renaming of the same service. YouTube Premium will launch soon, so there’s still time to pick up a Red subscription and lock in that discount.
