YouTube Originals goes free to watch starting next month

YouTube Originals goes free to watch starting next month
The first information that YouTube Originals might be free by 2020 emerged about a year ago. Back in May, YouTube confirmed that its original shows will be available for free to all, not just to paying Premium members.

Well, that time has come as YouTube has just confirmed that the Originals will go free to watch starting next month. The original series, movies, and events from YouTube will be available for free beginning September 24, 2019, but the viewing experience will differ based on whether or not you have a YouTube Premium membership.

If you're a paying Premium member, you'll get ad-free viewing of YouTube Originals, access to all the available episodes in a series right when they premiere, the ability to download the YouTube Originals for offline viewing, and exclusive access to bonus content including director's cuts and extra scenes of YouTube Originals when available.

Non-Premium members will have to wait for each episode in a series to be released to the public. On top of that, they will see ads while watching these shows and only select episodes may be available for streaming at any time.

This is because they don't have enough, if any, Premium members :)

They have at least one subscription...mine!! And you're sitting here whining about...what exactly?! You've obviously lost track of how small the apple platform is...

What does this have to do with Apple ? Are you obsessed in the head? :)

You don't know what "whining" means if you think any of it happened here.

I hope they stop suggesting the premium service every time you look a video, it’s really annoying, who’s gonna tell them?

You should maybe try a different video/streaming service...or ask your mom to give you money for a YouTube subscription... ...What is apple offering you lately?? Why are you here? You're anti-Google correct??

A smelly outcast making fun of me, that’s so cute, first I don’t need my mom to give me money, second I use YouTube but I don’t care about the premium service like many others, that’s why they are offering this now for free, they failed miserably with this attempt as it was supposed to happen, and third but most important, take a shower and stop smoking that thing, get a decent job and a decent house
