Possibly a great deal on youtube premium

Theres a couple of threads out in the wild on if you use a VPN to login to russia and sign up to YT premium you get the rouble price of 199 roubles for a family one if you use revolut which translates as something silly as 3.5 euro a month instead of the actual euro price of 14.99.



use VPN, set to a russian server
clear cookies and history
open incognito mode
Create a new google user for this, Set the location to russia in google,, click on image in top right corner, settings, scroll down to bottom of page and set location from unite states to russia.
go to https://www.youtube.com/premium
Try to buy youtube premium and its showing american dollar price.

So what youre supposed to do is put in a russian address which the following is suggested
City: My City
Street: My street 1
State: Tulskaya oblast
ZIP: 300000

BUT even though Ive confirmed my russian vpn is working youtube wont let me change from the country which is set at "united states" so I can only pay in american dollars.


I have a suspicion either
1. Its not possible.
2. the bargain on hukd is a spoof to get you to download the vpn mentioned in the post (probable)
3. its possibly my VPN, and yt recognises it, so if anyone has a VPN thats not fastestvpn or hola (tried both) could you get on to russia , go to
https://www.youtube.com/premium
then sign up for family, go to pay, and try and change the address from united states, if it allows you to change the address see does the currency change..

OP; PureVPN has a Chrome add on. It allows you to select the country that Chrome will think that you're in.

For example;
Quote:
YouTube Premium is not available in Romania
But it is in Finland.
Quote:
₩1-month free trial ₩7,900/month excludes VAT
No love for Turkey;
Quote:
YouTube Premium is not available in Turkey
Oz;
Quote:
3-month free trial $14.99/month
Don't see a Russian option, though.

https://www.purevpn.com/best-vpn-deal - 5 year plan for $1.15 a month. PureVPN has an Android & IOS app.

thanks for that, do you mean there isnt a youtube premium in Russia or purevpn doesnt have a server in Russia, Russia is listed as one of the locations that offers yt premium so would be surprised if they only let them pay in dollars .

that said I can go to a russian version of the page and it does look like it only offers it in dollars.

Loads of YouTubers do videos now that allow exclusive access or first access to premium accounts. YouTube themselves are doing original videos (Documentary, TV Shows and movies) aimed at premium accounts. Additionally, premium accounts skip all the ads.

Best features so far is, if you are listing to a music videos on a mobile device and change to a different app. The Audio continues to play in the background unlike it just pausing with your regular account.

I wonder how this will affect being paid for adverts now?

Only last night our youtube channel finally monetised after meeting the ever more difficult criteria.

Have a look and don't be shy to sub if you are interested in Overlanding, camping or product reviews all created in Ireland.
