Welcome to Reddit,
Make sure your YouTube Premium membership has not expired. If you recently lost access to YouTube Premium and re-subscribed, it will take a few hours for saved videos to show once you've re-subscribed. If you're watching a YouTube video embedded on a website, make sure you're not blocking YouTube cookies. Sometimes you may see an info card or annotation in a video, which might look like an ad. YouTube creators can include these cards in their videos, but they are not ads—learn more about cards and annotations on YouTube. Your YouTube Premium membership won't hide cards or annotations.

Common troubleshooting steps
Please read the rules before posting. Never give out personal information ; employees will never ask for your login credentials! YouTube is showing ads even though I have premium self. I paid for Google play music ages ago and it came with YouTube red and now premium. I haven't had ads in forever, but I'm logged into my account on my mobile app and I'm seeing ads. Better be gone or I'm cancelling my membership. I found a way for it to fix its self, pause your subscription and then resume it it will take a day but it will fix its self.
I have no word as to whether this is a temporary or more long-term change, whether this was a test that has now terminated, or any other additional information. The blue box ad is also present whenever you return to the watch page e. The overlay ad in particular is extremely annoying. These ads are also present as a box on the regular web-based YouTube watch pages for these clips — where they are less obtrusive but still are ads on an ostensibly ad-free service. YouTube Premium is promoted as a paid, ad-free service.
