YouTube Premium service goes live in seven new countries

The paid streaming subscription service, YouTube Premium and YouTube Music Premium have been rolled out in seven new countries, taking the service to 25 and 21 global markets, respectively.

Previously known as "YouTube Red" that was initially launched in June, the YouTube Premium gives users access to advertisement-free video streaming.

The list of new countries getting this service is Colombia, Chile, Peru, Japan, Portugal, Ukraine and Switzerland, whereas India is yet to get the YouTube Premium services.

"If you want ad-free access and offline streaming, you can get Music Premium. The more all-encompassing YouTube Premium gives you the same benefits as Music Premium plus an ad-free experience across all of YouTube's videos and access to exclusive content," Android Police reported late on Wednesday.

YouTube Premium includes Music Premium but adds the full YouTube experience while adding background and offline playback along with exclusive YouTube original series. 

The subscription costs $11.99 per month.

Charges for YouTube Music Premium are $9.99/month that bring the entire former Google Play Music catalogue and YouTube's exclusive mixes, covers and live performances.
