Australia has become just the second market around the world to support the ad-free YouTube service.
Aussies can expect to pay $ 11.99 a month for the freedom to watch YouTube without those annoying adverts, as well as access YouTube Red’s collection of original programming.
There’s also the ability to download videos to a device for offline viewing, which is going to be welcome given the data caps on mobile plans.
Google is offering a month’s free trial of the service to celebrate the launch, with an introductory price of $ 9.99 a month for users signing up before June 6.

Google has doubled down on the Aussie Youtube releases today. Also on offer in Australia is YouTube Music, a dedicated app for accessing tunes on YouTube.
The new app, available on iOS and Android, offers a custom music channel catered to your tastes. While it’s available to all users, when partnered with a YouTube Red subscription the app offers offline listening, ad-free videos and the ability to continue listening to music while you use other apps on your device.
