YouTube has announced that all new YouTube Original series and specials will soon be available for free with ads, just like other content on the site.
This gives advertisers more opportunities to engage with a broader audience, drive meaningful results and align with top Hollywood talent and YouTube creators. Our new slate builds upon the success of our first two years. We’re continuing to focus on stories that delight us from our favorite personalities, inspire us through rich cultural moments and educate us on topics that matter. From returning hits like “Kevin Hart: What the Fit” and “Liza on Demand” to new shows — with Dude Perfect, Markiplier and a top secret project with Justin Bieber — the slate celebrates the diversity, authenticity and spirit characteristic of the YouTube community.
YouTube also announced the renewal of “Cobra Kai” for season three and confirmed it would be viewable without a paywall. Cobra Kai is a reboot of the 1984 classic “The Karate Kid.”
