These prepaid offerings are available in the 1 month and 3-month plans for the services and users will be able to top-up any time for an extra 1 month or 3 months should they desire. When users buy a prepaid YouTube Premium or YTMP plan. They will not have to worry about remembering to cancel their subscription after their subscription period is over.
Signing up for prepaid plans is fairly straightforward too. Users can simply launch the app or head over to the YouTube Premium website or YouTube Music Premium website on their PCs to sign up for the service.
