YouTube premium Free Originals Discover series movies hottest talent
Now you can enjoy YouTube’s premium shows for free.
Starting September 24th, YouTube is going to make its streaming service, YouTube Originals, available for everyone.
This reveal comes from an email that YouTube sent to its premium members yesterday. The email also mentioned the date for this change.
What is YouTube Originals?
YouTube Originals content is currently available to premium members only. It comes through YouTube’s paid premium streaming service that allows you to watch YouTube’s exclusive list of TV series and films.
Starting September 24, most YouTube Originals series, movies and live events will be free to watch with ads for “non-members”.
Premium will still be High Tier
There is still a tiering system between paid members and free members. Paid members get ad-free content, and are able to access every episode of a new season immediately. Free members will have to sit through ads and wait for each episode to be released over time.
Paid members also get exclusive access to bonus content such as directors’ cuts and extra scenes. YouTube also reminds premium members that they can download all this content for offline playback.
Not Everything is Free
Also, not all content is going to be free. YouTube has given a list of its Originals content that will still be exclusive to premium members. You can see the full list of premium-only content on YouTube’s blog post.
Any other content that is not on the list will be available to free members.
Watch YouTube Originals
YouTube Originals are original series, movies, and events from YouTube. You can check out the released series and movies on the YouTube Originals channel.
Beginning on September 24th, 2019, your YouTube Originals viewing experience will differ based on whether or not you have a YouTube Premium membership.
As part of their membership, YouTube Premium members get:
- Ad-free viewing of YouTube Originals
- Access to all the available episodes in a series right when they premiere
- The ability to download YouTube Originals for offline viewing
- Exclusive access to bonus content such as director’s cuts and extra scenes of YouTube Originals when available.
YouTube Originals available with YouTube Premium can be identified by the YouTube Premium badge
Some YouTube Original series, movies, and live events are available for viewing without a YouTube Premium subscription. However, you will see ads during this viewing experience and only select episodes may be available for streaming at any time.
