YouTube has just announced a new student discount for their YouTube Music and YouTube Premium services.
The new deal nearly cuts the price of Premium in half, from $11.99 per month to $5.99 per month. YouTube Music goes from $9.99 per month down to $4.99 per month for students that take advantage of the new program.
While the savings are significant, there are a few stipulations. Firstly, students must be registered as full-time students at an accredited college or university. Students will also only be able to take advantage of the deal for four years with verification of their student status taking place annually.
With YouTube Music, subscribers can listen to ad free music on the platform, download tracks to their devices, and listen to music while using other apps. YouTube Premium, formerly branded as YouTube Red, allows similar benefits for all areas of YouTube, regardless of whether the videos are musical in nature or not. Premium subscribers are also free to watch YouTube’s library of YouTube Originals, exclusive shows made by the platform’s top content creators.
