Google is currently promoting a free three-month trial of YouTube Red, its ad-free video service offering subscribers uninterrupted music, background app play, and offline access to YouTube-hosted content.
In addition to allowing users to test out the personalized stations via the new YouTube Music mobile app, the trial provides access to original programming produced by YouTube creators as well as the full range of YouTube Kids channels.
A free Google Play Music account is also included as an extra perk, offering access to an extensive catalog of streamed music and unlimited storage for uploading their existing music library.
After the free trial concludes, subscribers pay $9.99 per month. Users can cancel their YouTube Red trial and full membership at any time. It's also worth noting that if users cancel their Google Play Music subscription they lose access to YouTube Red and no longer qualify for the free trial.
The limited time offer is open to U.S. residents only and ends July 4.

I love supporting good content and putting my money where my mouth is, however I'm always wary of subscriptions as it's easy to spend more on something than you intended to.
If just for things you lose interest in or don't notice that eventually a competitor is cheaper and/or better.
Subscriptions promote laziness and companies are rarely there to exhaust themselves on value when they know that laziness and the hectic of people's lives is what keeps them loyal the best.
I don't even think it's always with bad intentions, but it is the nature of things that you try your hardest when you have to play all your cards just like your competitors.
