Google has quietly expanded the reach of its YouTube Red subscription service beyond the U.S. for the first time. It is now available in Australia and New Zealand.


The two new countries were added in Google's YouTube help pages (via 9to5Google). There's no word yet on the pricing for YouTube Red in those locations but they do get a 30-day free trial.

Google launched the service in the U.S. in October for $9.99 a month, offering users ad-free videos on YouTube, along with exclusive original content. It also allows users to save videos to watch while offline, along with support for playing videos and music in the background while using other apps. It also includes full access to the Google Play Music subscription service.
