Thanks for the BA. I logged into YouTube in Chrome, set Hola to India, subbed using my employers plant address over there and signed up no bother. Invites sent out to my family and everything set up.

For €2 per month, that's a steal. My teenagers especially like the ability to stream music with YouTube running in the background. I had been using Vanced myself but it didn't work across all my devices and appeared to be causing some battery drain even when it wasn't running.

Brilliant value.
I cancelled my Netflix and Spotify accounts as the YT premium is so good.

If you're setting up a family plan, make sure that's set up BEFORE you go to YouTube and BEFORE you start your VPN.
What is meant by this? Do you need to set up a free family account first before converting to Premium?

Yup. Add you family members, then fire up the VPN, go to the foreign site and subscribe. You'll need an address to put as your billing address; use the Irish Embassy or whatever

Just needed for the sign-up to Premium by the primary account. Can uninstall the VPN immediately after.

Why Tidal ? You can just download the YouTube Music App instead. I know Tidal has better quality, but since most use bluetooth - I don't think the quality is preserved.

Also if you download Brave browser you can access youtube through a web browser interface and get the same benefits as using vanced.

I find ytube music lacks a lot whereas tidal is as good as Spotify. At the price on turkey, it's worth it.

But people are saying that there's no need for a family account as a single sub can be used simultaneously across multiple devices?

Or have I read that wrong?

What are the steps to take if you are already a premium account holder? Do I need to set up a new account or is there a way to re-sign up using a VPN?

luddite here btw!

i don't think so - from my ltd reading it looks like the country of your card and the country of the spotify account have to match.

Just a heads up on this. When you add people to your family it also adds them to your family Gmail calendar...father in law spying on us for weeks without knowing

You can use one account if you are happy logging your family into that Google account on their phones, which I suspect gives them access to its email etc. Less of an issue if you create the Gmail account you are to use specifically for this, I suppose.
And so long you are happy with everyone's choices all being mixed together. You'd see all the videos everyone had watched in the History tab, and influencing suggestions on what to watch.

I judged it worth the extra fiver or so a year for Family.

If you have Netflix, it'd be like everyone using the same profile to watch, rather than using different profiles for the kids etc. under the one account.
