YouTube Premium and YouTube Music are now available in more than 50 countries around the world.
Today, both services rolled out to a handful of new regions in Europe, including Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, and Romania. In a statement, YouTube said the services now officially have 10 times the reach they did when YouTube Red relaunched as YouTube Premium in May 2018.
Like we saw with Premium and Music’s recent rollout to the critical Indian market, the services are being offered at a cost adjusted to each country’s particular economic situation. In India, customers pay about $2 per month for YouTube Premium (which includes YouTube Music), or about $1 for YouTube Music by itself. 9to5Google found that in the recently-expanded-to Czech Republic, people pay about $7 per month for YouTube Premium, or about $6.50 for YouTube Music alone.
