What you need to know

  • Google has rolled out a new promo for YouTube Premium subscribers in the UK.
  • The promo lets YouTube Premium subscribers in the country redeem a Stadia Premiere Edition bundle for free.
  • Google's Stadia Premiere Edition bundle includes a Chromecast Ultra and a Clearly White Stadia Controller.

Google has introduced a new promotion in the UK, which allows YouTube Premium subscribers to redeem a Stadia Premiere Edition bundle for free (via Android Police). The Stadia Premiere Edition bundle, which is priced at £90 in the country, comes with a Chromecast Ultra and a Clearly White Stadia Controller.

If you have a YouTube Premium subscription, you should see a message about the Stadia Premiere Edition offer when you open the YouTube app on your phone. Even if you don't see the message yet, you can still check if you are eligible for the offer by visiting this URL. It is important to note, however, that the promo is currently limited to the UK. Whether or not Google plans to expand the availability of the promo to other regions, is something that remains to be seen.

After you accept the offer, you will receive a personal redemption link for the Stadia Premiere Edition bundle. You have until December 31 to redeem your freebie from the Google Store.

According to a screenshot shared by Twitter user @RandomNoobYT, you must have an active paid YouTube Premium subscription since November 6 or earlier. This means YouTube Premium subscribers who signed up for the service after November 6 or those of you who are on a free trial won't be able to claim a free Stadia Premiere Edition bundle.

Update, November 17 (08:00 am ET) — YouTube Premium subscribers in Canada and select European countries can now claim a free Stadia Premiere Edition bundle

As expected, the promo is now live in Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

Update, November 11 (09:00 am ET) — The promo will soon be available in Canada and Europe

While the promo is currently available only to YouTube Premium subscribers in the U.S. and the U.K., a new report from XDA Developers says it will expand to Canada and Europe "in the coming days."

Update, November 10 (11:30 am ET) — Now live in the U.S. too!

As reported by the folks at 9to5Google, the exciting promotion has now been expanded to the U.S. as well. While we cannot be sure, it is possible that the promo will expand to a few more countries in the near future.

  • When they start giving things away. Google going to abandon it.
  • I don't know anyone in the UK that owns it and I don't recall seeing any adverts for it in the UK to. I am with you though I don't see Google listing long in this space especially with xcloud on the way and also the new xbox and PlayStation consoles out
