Brown Cow London, Senior Marketing Manager

They approach marketing in the same way --breaking the rules, redefining the medium, making the user the hero, and ultimately, letting the technology speak for itself. 

YouTube Subscriptions launched in June 2018 in the UK. YouTube Premium -- users can get YouTube ad-free, offline and listening in the background.
