Google’s YouTube has finally launched Premium and Music services in here at Middle East & North Africa region. Kuwait is also on the list and now we can subscribe to YouTube’s Premium service.
According to YouTube’s statement on official blog, YouTube Premium would start at 23.99 SAR in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, 23.99 AED in United Arab Emirates and 5.99 USD in the other markets includes Kuwait. Of course all prices are monthly.
YouTube Originals content are limited for now and its not enough in my opinion. But If you would like to stop ads on YouTube videos, you can subscribe YouTube Premium. Also YouTube focused on music. If you are YouTube Premium member, you are able to use YouTube app in the background on your phone. This feature waited for so long by YouTube users, but Google now asking your money for this feature.
Fight will not stops. Apple TV+ and Disney+ is coming soon, also Netflix and Amazon Prime Video is big players in the game. As end users, It will be hard to choose one service, all we will consider to pay for each services.
