YouTube Red

Dear Computer Lady,

How do I unsubscribe from u-tube red?

I don’t know how I subscribed to it in the first place…I must have hit something.

Is there a difference between u- tube and u- tube red?

Thank you for your help, Feeley

Dear Feeley,

Let’s start with what YouTube Red actually is.

YouTube Red is a paid subscription service. Basically, you the viewer, are paying a monthly fee for the privilege of watching YouTube videos without any advertisements. YouTube Red also allows you to download videos to your phone or tablet where you can view them for 30 days without an internet connection.

YouTube Red is currently $10 per month, and there is a free 30 day trial for you to try it out.

You might have subscribed to it by clicking on one of the little banners on a video offering to let you view all videos without ads.

Here is how to cancel your YouTube Red subscription.

1. Log into your account at YouTube
2. Go to
3. Click on the link that says, “Cancel Membership”
4. Confirm your decision by clicking on “Yes, Cancel”
