how to use Airtel youtube night data

Airtel Nigeria is the best network provider in Nigeria that gives its subscribers a large pack of bonus data bundle for streaming on Youtube in the night only. Now, if you are having a youtube night data plan in your Airtel sim card, how should you use it? In this post, you will know everything.

As its name implies, Airtel youtube night data can only be used in the night. It starts from 12AM midnight and once it is 5AM, the airtel youtube night bonus will be discontinued, hence, further data deductions will be started from your active data balance.

Airtel youtube night data is given to an Airtel customer who subscribes for data plan above N500 and if you don’t subscribe above N500 to enjoy data in the night on Airtel network, read more in this post for how to activate Airtel night data plan.

How to use Airtel night data plan step by step

As we have earlier let you know in this article, Airtel gives free data for watching videos on youtube only in the night when you buy a data bundle above N500. However, another way to subscribe for night data bundle on Airtel network for doing anything online from 12AM to 5AM is by dialing *312*3# and follow the prompts.

Before you start using Airtel youtube night data, you should firstly know your available balance by dialing *140#. Then after that, simply follow the step by step guides below for how to use youtube night data on Airtel.

  1. Insert your Airtel sim card to your browsing device
  2. Open your data connection, for example, wi-fi, modem, ethernet etc.
  3. After 12AM (midnight), then start watching any video you like on youtube
  4. While youtube night data bundle is in your sim card, you can download and upload any video of your choice during the night
  5. Stop watching video on Youtube once it is 5AM if you don’t want to use you main data bundle, i.e, Airtel night data lasts from 12AM to 5AM
  6. Airtel night data bundle is untransfferable, for example, you cannot share it with other SIM card regardless of any type of network it is
  7. It expires concurrently in the same way that your main data bundle will expire
  8. If you are not getting Youtube night data while you are subscribing for a data plan above N500 regularly, then you can contact your customer care for correcting something for you on your SIM card by dialing 111.

Best of all, the good news is that Airtel YouTube night data bonus can be used on any type of network coverage, I.e, you can enjoy Airtel YouTube night data bonus even though you are not migrating your Airtel sim from 3G to 4G.

Still the same issue this week, tonight to be precise. Please is there anything needed to be done?

YouTube data is a scam, it doesn’t work at all, God will punish all of you!!!

Chinenye Ezeanochie June 21, 2022 - 3:10 am

Honestly ehhhhh…. Airtel YouTube night bundle is A Scam!!
I recharged and I was given night bundle bonus, I was watching videos only to find out that it was my main Data bundle it was using!!
I have contacted Customer call Three times..I just did now, and they are saying…restart your phone before using it,put on and off airplane mode!!
All these I have done..but still nothing happened!!!
It’s so sad Airtel!!!!
Recharging my phone to last for some time only for you guys to spoil show for me!!!
This is the NOT the first time!!!
You people should do something, your so called Customer Care doesn’t resolve Anything!!!
That’s too so pained!!!

Guess there’s no need asking questions because you keep giving the same guideline that people claimed to have used without the desired solution. Apparently you don’t have the solution to most complaints raised or questions asked.

Guys, I’m experiencing the same issue that Abdulrazaq seems not to have a clue to. I just subscribed #1000 on Monday (using *141# as I have been doing for almost 2 years) so I have an active YouTube data because balance was checked to confirm. I streamed and downloaded videos between 2am to 4.30am only to discover immediately I was done that my main data was deducted/wiped off while the YouTube own is untouched. This goes on and on till it eventually expired. This is what I l’ve observed for about a month now.
QUESTION: Why the stress of denying sleep to download in the night using Airtel sim since it’s the main data that is being deducted with impunity as against the supposed YouTube night data that is being claimed to be used by this blogger?

Abdulrazaq March 30, 2022 - 12:25 pm

Sorry for the inconvenience you experienced. Dial *140# to check your data balance including that of youtube night bonus data bundle and reply to us with your remaining balance respectively.

Jordan March 28, 2022 - 5:57 pm

Useless! I think I will change this network is so frustrating that you get to stay up late to download movies just for you to be using your main data,,I can’t take it anymore.

Anonymous March 24, 2022 - 12:03 am

Josephine March 23, 2022 - 3:05 am

Abdulrazaq March 23, 2022 - 4:12 am

Ahh, sorry for this. Please check whether your YouTube night data bonus bundle remain or not by dialing *140#. Thank you.

Debby January 6, 2022 - 3:07 am

Abdulrazaq January 1, 2022 - 10:46 pm

Airtel youtube night data bundles only work in the midnight streaming videos on YouTube as its name implies. If you want to download something, please download from Play store (games and application) or on youtube (music only) with a stipulated time: 12 AM to 5 AM (night).

If you are getting more questions, please don’t hesitate to reply back.

Godwin Gody December 15, 2021 - 5:12 am

I have YouTube night data of over 30,000 MB trying to download some movies on my
phone my main data was all consume, after staying awake from 12 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. as if that is not enough, each time I buy data it will disappear.

Abdulrazaq December 15, 2021 - 11:11 am

The recommended code to use for buying Airtel data plan which gives YouTube night data bonus is *141#.
Dial* *141# via your Airtel sim card and buy a data plan which is worth higher than N500 in order for your existing night data bundles not be wiped off.

If you are needing more help, please reply!!

Emeka Onuorah October 24, 2021 - 4:58 am

Abdulrazaq Yahaya October 24, 2021 - 10:13 am

Sorry for the inconvenience experience you observed. Please check your data bundle balance by dialling *140#,;if you don’t have a YouTube data bundle, then you can stream YouTube at night with your line.
