Three devices at once, but you can only stream Music or music-related videos on one device at a time. Family Plans are $17.99 for five different accounts.

Well, in my case I've been using VideoProc or 4KVideo Downloader to actually save some YouTube videos to a flash drive. I can then play them on my Roku Ultra box. Still doesn't help when I browse via the App

I just pay for premium. Worth it for me.

The jinxing continued, btw. Shortly after I posted that comment DVD Talk stopped loading pages through my Brave browser. I now have to use Firefox here, and Brave for everything else. (These are the iPad app versions)

Interesting as I'm currently browsing with Brave and don't seem to be experiencing an issue but admit it's on a Win10 desktop machine (not iPad version)

Re: YouTube ads getting more invasive

I've been really happy with my Premium subscription so far. The only problem is there is a slight buffer at the beginning of the videos and the first few words sound a bit garbled. I also like the recent YouTube update on Roku. The text of the video name doesn't take up the whole screen any more. It's place in the upper left part of the screen.
