YouTube has said that the new annual plans are currently available in India, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Japan, Russia, Thailand, Turkey, and the US. YouTube is not providing any partial refund, in case a user picks an annual plan in the middle of their current ongoing plan. The payment for the annual pans is also on a prepaid basis and is non-recurring in nature. This means that users will need to manually update their subscription once the original plan expires.
