Youtube Premium Free for three months

Youtube Premium has just launched today in Ireland. What is Youtube Premium? Well, it's they're paid version of YT that gets rid of those ads that have gotten completely out of control, their premium content (it ain't Netflix yet) as well as adding in Googles Music streaming service on top of it. Just sign up (and cancel) for three free months.

It includes something similar to Spotify, and if you watch any youtube videos the person who posted them gets some money, not sure how much.

Another way around ads is download Firefox and install adblocker and watch via their site

Handy if you aren't techy to root the phone

I assume works for iOS
