YouTube is going all the way with new premium, ad-supported content that will be available on the platform soon. The company announced that their new line up of original shows will not be part of their paid subscriptions, YouTube Red, but will be freely available to everyone.
You can expect actors like, Rhett and Link, Kevin Hart, Ellen DeGeneres, the slow Mo Guys, Katy Perry, Ludacris and Demi Lovato to feature in original shows that will arrive later in 2017. The Google owned company will start off with seven different shows featuring these stars.
YouTube’s new shows will be available globally at no cost to YouTube users, and revenue will be increased through ads from premium sponsors. So you might have to suffer through some time consuming advertisements, but that’s the price you will have to pay for watching premium content for free.
