YouTube is apparently sending invitations to its Premium subscribers to give them free access to paid channels on the platform…
Video-hosting site YouTube is seemingly giving away paid content for free. Some Premium members have reported getting prompts to select a free channel membership — worth up to $5 per month.
YouTube Premium Subscribers Receiving Prompts to Choose Free Channel Memberships
Some YouTube Premium subscribers are being surprised by a free gift from the company. It’s access to a paid channel of their choice. However, not all YouTube Premium subscribers are seeing the give-away.
The fact that it’s not widely available to all subscribers strongly suggests this is a test. But, that doesn’t mean the experiment will go mainstream to all people who subscribe to YouTube Premium.
Here’s just one example of what’s happening:
“SO when I logged in on Youtube a small window said I have a free channel membership I can join (worth $5) but when I choose one of my subscriptions it still wants me to pay. So what was this? A lie, bug or will it not charge me when i click Pay and enter my digits for my card?
Picture says: Choose a channel this month. One free channel membership (worth up to $5)”
