Get or manage a YouTube Premium membership through a YouTube partner

You can buy, and pay for your YouTube Premium membership through some mobile phone providers who have partnered with us to offer YouTube Premium to their members. You will receive all the same YouTube Premium benefits as purchasing directly from YouTube. 

The mobile phone carriers we are currently partnered with are:

  • au by KDDI
  • TIM
  • Vodafone

To sign up for YouTube Premium through one of these providers, read more below.

At this time only individual memberships for YouTube Premium can be purchased through these companies. If you want to purchase a family plan, you will need to sign up directly with YouTube.
