Sign up for a YouTube Annual Plan

If you’re new to YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium, you may be eligible for an Annual Plan. This is a pre-paid, non-recurring membership. Once you subscribe, you can enjoy 12 months of Premium membership benefits until your plan expires. See below for eligibility details.

Check if you’re eligible for an Annual Plan

To sign up for an Annual Plan, follow the steps below from a mobile or desktop web browser. After completing your purchase, you can use your YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium benefits on an Android or Apple device by signing into the account where you purchased your membership.

To sign up for an Annual Plan, you must be:

  • A new YouTube Premium or Music Premium subscriber. If you are already subscribed to YouTube Premium or YouTube Music and want to switch to an Annual Plan, learn how to do so here.
  • An individual subscriber. Student and family plans are not eligible.
  • Located in any of the following locations:
    • United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, Turkey, Germany, Thailand, India, and Japan.
    • Note for India subscribers: If you have a 1 month or 3 month prepaid plan, you can sign up for an Annual Plan that will begin when your prepaid plan expires.

How do YouTube Premium Annual Plans work?

When you purchase an Annual Plan, you pay upfront for a non-recurring individual subscription. This means your paid membership benefits will end after the 12 month period you paid for. To keep access to your benefits, you’ll need to purchase another plan.

Partial refunds are not available for Annual Plans. If you purchased an Annual Plan, and need to cancel it, get in touch with YouTube Support. If you want to report a fraudulent transaction, file a claim here.

Learn more below about eligibility, and how to sign up. You can also explore our paid membership options to decide which one is right for you.
