Google I/O seems to have come early, thanks to some of you eagle-eyed readers. On top of the Australian launch of YouTube Red, Google has also seen fit to bring back the early bird subscription rate for the combination of their premium streaming services.
Normally Google Play Music All Access (which includes YouTube Red) cost $11.99 per month. As an introductory offer for YouTube Red, Google is currently offering a $2/month discount for early subscribers (the same discount that a number of Ausdroid staff enjoy on Play Music All Access from its original launch). You’ll get the discount every month if you sign up for the service(s) before June 6, 2016.
It’s not clear whether you can cancel your current membership and re-subscribe at the lower rate – let us know if you give that a go[Update] Several readers have reached out to us to let us know that they are seeing the discount automatically applied to their existing Google Play All Access accounts. We have to say that automatically applying the discount is a solid move by Google, a hat tip to whomever made that decision.
There’s also a free one month trial, which seems to be on offer even if you previous trialled Play Music All Access.
YouTube Red and Play Music All Access for $9.99/month is a pretty nice deal. If you’re interested, you can follow this link to sign up now.
