Isn't Hola one of the dodgier VPNs? It is "free"..

I primarily use Youtube on the telly using the native app. If I have a family plan set up via my phone or laptop, should I have any issues using Premium on the telly?

I have one account which I use on a phone and 2 TVs. Bar sharing history across all devices, they all use the premium account and can do so simultaneously. It's not like netflix where you can only have 1 device per slot running at a time.

Problem with picking another country is your youtube music app is full of Indian/Turkish music in the playlists and new releases

You need the VPN to sign up, not to continue to access.
My YT on my TV has Irish music/new releases.

I'm a bit confused my this.
I've created a couple of new gmail accounts for our family, one of the kids, one for the adults.
I've logged into YouTube with the Adults account, but for the life of me I can't find how to add family members without going through the 1 month trial of Premium.
Anyone help an old man out?

How much is Netflix in Turkey? Do you use a VPN for first time connection or do you need to keep it running?

Thank you.

https://families.google.com/families - create the Family group here first. Then upgrade it to YouTube Premium Family, IIRC.

I think this needs to be done first as Families generally have to be in the same country, which is done by setting payment methods for one country. You'll be setting up a new payment in a different country (hence the whole VPN thing and giving a foreign billing address) to get that country's rate; if you add members later, they will be seen as being in a different country for these purposes. But if done before, they continue to be part of the Family.

True but i use YT on TV and tablet and phone and PC and it;s small money overall.
YT music is good as you can get all the live concerts etc on your phone as tracks to play in the car. EVen stuff other people have recorded.

This is important if you're setting it up. Got to have members added (and invitations accepted) before you do the vpn trick.
