YouTube Premium Raises Family Plan Prices Before Thanksgiving

Today YouTube sent out an email to subscribers informing them that the family plan has increased from $17.99 per month to $22.99 per month.

Two individuals also went to Reddit to share screenshots of emails they received from the streaming service.

Also, go to ‘Settings > Purchases & Memberships page to check your account status and billing information. All members can suspend or cancel at any time here.’

A YouTube representative has confirmed the price increase for the family plan.

YouTube spokeswoman Marni Greenberg recently issued a statement about the family plan price increase.

‘We don’t take these decisions lightly, and we’re realizing how difficult this is for our members,’ she said.

She continued, ‘This new price reflects the full value of YouTube Premium and will allow us to develop more Premium features and allow members to continue supporting the creators and artists they see and hear on YouTube.’

In addition, the price change is already in effect in some regions, including:

The price increase for the video streaming platform also comes days after YouTube Premium subscribers canceled a test that required them to watch video in 4K resolution. It aroused anger among users.
