How to Manage YouTube Duplicate Subscriptions
YouTube offers many paid membership options for YouTube & Google Play Music. You can subscribe to YouTube Premium (former YouTube Red), YouTube music Premium or YouTube TV depending on what you want. After upgrading or switching from one membership option to another, you may find that there is multiple billing on your account. Some of the paid membership options automatically give you access to other subscriptions too, so you may be able to save money by canceling the lower-tier subscription. For instance, if you switched from Google Play Music to YouTube Premium. You may be able to save money by canceling your Google Play Music subscription. This because Google Play Music is already included in your YouTube Premium membership.
To fix a duplicate subscription, you may need to cancel the original subscription you had before you upgraded. This usually occurs when you upgrade from Google Play Music to YouTube Premium. It is also commonplace when you sign up for YouTube on iTunes and then signed up for another one directly with YouTube on your computer.
