Finally signed up to this deal. Noticed that it is over 6 months since it's been posted so posting it again for those who weren't aware. Impressed with the service so far.
Full credit to Mitr for the original deal, title and description.
Google has finally launched Youtube Premium in India for INR 129(AUD ~2.60) and Family Membership for INR 189 (AUD ~3.80).
Comes with Youtube Music, No Ads in Youtube as well as Google Play Music.
This cost cheaper that was posted earlier for using Russian subscription option posted here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/414890
I have signed up after cancelling Russian plan with my Macquarie Debit card so no conversion charges.
Everything included in post by @Dealbot applies here too.
Youtube Premium will give you access to -
• Ad-free videos: Watch videos without interruptions
• Save offline: Save videos and songs on your mobile device to watch offline
• Background play: Keep videos or music playing when using other apps or when your screen’s off
• Audio mode: Listen to audio only on the YouTube Music app
• Google Play Music Subscription (when available in your country) is included at no additional cost
Current pricing is $14.99 per month in Australia. This workaround should work for new and existing customers.
Again, the trick to making this work is having access to a VPN service. If you're signed up to one then the rest of the process should be fairly simple.
1. Connect a VPN to the server India (I connected to Bangalore)
2. Click on Paid Memberships(youtube.com), then click on Learn more.
Enter Indian address and pay by credit card.
Termination takes place under this link(music.youtube.com)
Example of a India Address :
Address line : My Place
Town/City : Mumbai
Postcode : 400070
State : Maharashtra
