YouTube Originals Content Will Soon Be Available For Free

YouTube Originals content will be made available for free of charge, the company’s Chief Business Officer, Robert Kyncl said.

For now, YouTube Originals contents are currently available to paid subscribers only. However, the media streaming company will make it available for free with ad-support though we do not know when the change will take effect.

While speaking at the annual advertiser-focused Brandcast event, the CBO said that all Originals will have an ad-supported option for users to decide. This means YouTube won’t abandon paid subscription either, but will let you decide for yourself the one that suites you best.

While every other media company is racing to put their content behind paywall, we’re headed in the opposite direction by making our original content available for free,” Kyncl said.

Addressing the issue of misinformation and hate speech on YouTube, Company CEO Susan Wojcicki said, “I recognize that there is still work to be done, but we’re committed to getting this right,” she said, pointing out that millions of offending videos are removed, with the majority of which “have not received a single view.”
