    Default YouTube Premium music streaming service

    I've just had an email offering three months free of their new service.

    Anyone going for it?

    https://www.youtube.com/musicpremium

    This little clause requires further looking into ... "You agree that your purchase will be available immediately and that you waive your statutory right of withdrawal."
    It seems to be different from subscription cancellation if I didn't want to continue after 3 months and start paying ... ?

    You can cancel at an time. It does state this elsewhere. I think what you refer to is withdrawl from contract. This is only relevant on, say, buying double glazing where you will have a 14 day cooling off period after signing, so if you change your mind you can.

    On this YT service you receive your purchase and can use it immediatel, therefore you cannot withdraw and decide to return it. It does look like you can still ask for refund if your purchase was not what you were expecting, ie. misrepresented in some way, may a different quality to that advertised.

    I think that applies to downloading a film, you can't download it, watch it, then decide to cancel and ask for a refund. The streaming service you can cancel anytime, but they won't do a partial refund of the subscription for that month.

    I've signed up.
    Only time for a quick explore before I set off for 'work' today, search option brings up albums and YT vids. Looks promising, but won't get a chance to listen to it till this evening.

    Anyone know the quality?

    Well ... I've had a brief play with it and I suppose it's early days, but the classical catalogue is very sparsely filled. Not much there at all compared to Spotify, Qobuz or Tidal.
    Only had a brief play with it, but a thumbs down so far.
    It sounds OK - similar to Spotify Premium at first blush, but doesn't have the finer detail of 16/44 Qobuz.
    Be interesting to see where it's got to in 3 months when the free sub ends.

    I've been playing with the Android mobile app casting to my telly in free no obligation mode.

    For the three bands I checked, the content is almost exactly the same as TIDAL. Which is annoying. If there was disparity it would make it much more interesting.

    I have noticed Spotify, TIDAL, YT etc all seem to have very similar content for the bands I like, so access to the content of any artist that is missing can't be made up by switching services.

    I think that's deliberate.

    Bummer.

    ... as a UI for searching and playing YT vids it's excellent

    Hmm -- I wonder if the YT vid playback is down sampled to the 320kbs used for the albums even for the hi-rez available direct from YouTube? If so, not so good.
