YouTube Premium: Individual £1.37/month or Family £2/month (via Indian VPN)

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

YouTube Premium provides ad-free YouTube, some premium content + YouTube Music. UK standard price for an Individual membership is £11.99/month.

I'm currently visiting India and noticed prices for Indian users are MUCH cheaper:
Individual: 129 INR = £1.37 GBP
Family: 189 INR = £2.00 GBP

I believe these prices are cheaper than previous offers posted (eg Russia VPN/billing - Individual £2.16 / Family £3.14).

I just successfully added a YouTube Premium Family subscription to my account, I have a UK debit card but entered India as the billing country and their system didn't seem to mind. No problems with my YouTube/Music content - no odd suggestions etc.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Start up a VPN that offers locations in India (eg hide.me)
2) Browse to youtube.com/pre…ium and start adding subscription
3) When entering payment details, enter India as your billing country (their system doesn't seem to check for validity)

Happy bingeing!

The best 129 rupees I spend each month!

If you need it just to not have ads, you could install YouTube Vanced, which is a free app. No ads, lets you play the videos when the screen is off as well and has other nice features.
I did this last time around (Christmas). I wanted to do a family account... I created a new account on Gmail, and made it a paid Indian family account.

Unfortunately everyone that I invited for example my account that is here in the UK, could not join the family plan because they were not registered on the same country. I didn't want my main Gmail account to change country because this causes complications with banking apps and play store payments.

Thus I created another account for YouTube use only and added that to the Indian paid family plan!
(the hassle was copying my playing list from one YouTube account to the other)

Hope this helps someone!
Setting up a YT family account was harder than I thought. Even after creating a UK payment profile on my Indian account, I could not connect any of my UK accounts to the family, VPN or not. I even tried adding an Indian payment profile to my UK account, still wouldn't let me because I wasn't in the same country.

Here is what finally worked for me, with the added bonus of requiring no change whatsoever to the existing UK accounts.

There is a key step (changing country in play store) which requires an android phone. I don't know how to make it work with only an iPhone or a PC. After setup, you can use any type of phone.

- Connect to an Indian VPN (I used NordVPN)
- Go to gmail.com and create a new Indian account, using a random Indian billing address. You need to enter a real phone number as you will receive a code by SMS. I used my UK phone number without issues. Pick a valid postal code here: indiapost.gov.in/vas/pages/FindPinCode.aspx
- Register for a YT premium membership at youtube.com/paid_memberships using a fee-free card if possible (I used my Revolut card). IMPORTANT:DO NOT create a family yet!!!! This is the KEY!!! Do not set up any sort of sharing! (If you did create a family, you can just delete it. Don't mess up again as you can only change family once a year)
- Disconnect from the Indian VPN. You have now officially moved to the UK. Welcome.

Following your relocation for personal reasons, you need a UK payment profile for your Indian account!

- Go to manage your account / payment details and create a new UK-based payment profile. pay.google.com/gp/w/home/setting
Note: this is different than adding a UK card or a UK address. You need to go in the right-most tab that says "Settings" which lists your "payment profile for Google Play". Try to edit your country and you will be prompted to create a new profile for the new country.
- This is the step missing from other guides: you need that UK profile to be set up for the Google Play Store. For this, you need the google play store app(the browser/desktop interface does not allow you to change country for some reason). Go to your account settings and under "country & profile" and you will see your 2 profiles. Select the UK one. Note: You can only change country once a year.

What if you do not see 2 profiles? Make sure: 1. you are in the UK (i.e. not on the VPN) 2. not part of any family (confirm at families.google.com/ and if needed, delete the family.) 3. you did create a UK profile (confirm at pay.google.com/gp/w/home/setting).

- Once your google play profile is set to the UK, you can start sharing. Start your family at families.google.com. Invite any UK account. It will just work. No need for a VPN since this is a British family. Your YT membership is still charged to your Indian payment profile but shared with your British family

I solved this by accepting the family request from the family member’s email account whilst on the india vpn - if they are not connected to an indian vpn i found it didn’t work - which i suspect may have been the problem for you

This has been covered on the last India YouTube premium deal

hotukdeals.com/comments/permalink/38318437

This should sort your issue out.

The only issue I cant get around is the Indian playlist/charts/suggestions and how to change them to the uk

@Gee3000 this info is probably best put in your OP.

Thanks for the tip. I have so many devices though including watching youtube on some old tv’s etc that for me to find a solution for each would probably take more time and effort than spending £1.30 per month. Great for those who watch it on the phone only does it allow downloading videos?
Best to set up a new "Indian" Google account then? I couldn't afford to have my UK account compromised in anyway

How would YouTube mobile work, does the app automatically go off of your system account?

Heated OP, very tempted!

Unfortunately not, but for that I use Newpipe. (I know, it's a hassle to have all these apps )
Vanced on Android......
“Family member not registered to same country“ is a issue when trying to add other accounts. Could someone clarify if the correct process is to register for premium family whilst on India VPN, continue to do the invites and have the invites accepted when they are also on India VPN?

Seen solutions before about adding payment profiles etc. One straightforward explanation step by step to avoid this error would be appreciated.

IP address has nothing to do with it, as soon as you walk out the house and use your mobile your on a different IP. Also it is unlikely that your IP stays the same as ISPs use dynamic addresses which change periodically. I don’t think there is anyway this could be flagged. I have mine shared with other family members in a different household.

Still getting 199:

*EDIT* Just realised it is RUB which I presume is Russian rubles rather than Indian rupees?

Definitely. But region isn't something I could change on my UK account is it? As a another poster has already said, if you did that it would have knock ons to your Pay, Location Services etc. surely? - Also, there's a small chance Google could sanction your account at some point if you were 'found out'

Having a separate account seems the easier option for me personally.
Been doing this for the last year. Don't forget you also get YouTube music included with this and also Google Play music.

Yeah, hence I think I'll leave it despite being a great price as certainly wouldn't want to compromise my google a/c.

Been using Vance a few years now which is generally very good, esp as it continues to play when screen is off.

Becareful do not to change profile country. I have mistakenly changed to India and now playstore profile also changed to India. I have watched numerous YouTube video, added additional UK card but I cannot change the profile country anymore so I am stuck for a year.
