YouTube Premium is now £12.99.  Bastards.  I shall hook up my laptop to the TV to enable ad blocking, I think.  Or pay for NordVPN and subscribe to YT via Turkey, which costs next to nothing.
Hard work sometimes pays off in the end, but laziness ALWAYS pays off NOW.

As for youtube; chrome + privacy badger + ublock origin = only ads that are within the video not what YT adds extra.

Got a spare laptop or raspberry pi then install Pihole along with the above extensions this cut down on ads and trackers.

Internet archive and 12 foot ladder jump most paywalls. Bit of searching you can get another news website writing/posting the same article or commenting on it so you can read it that way.

If I use the website enough I will pay/sign up to said website.
