YouTube Originals Will Soon Be Free to Watch

In an effort to get more viewers to watch Originals, YouTube will make its programming released after Sept. 24 free to view with ads. The first season of the 'Karate Kid' spinoff, 'Cobra Kai,' was made available to watch for free on Thursday. Season 2 of the show will be made available on Sept. 11, with episodes put out weekly. Both seasons will only be free for a limited time. It’s nice to have the ability that everyone get a chance to view the show and maybe come on board and stick around for the whole run of as many seasons as we can get, Ralph Macchio, AKA Daniel Larusso, via statement. YouTube Premium will still be available to consumers for $11.99 a month if they'd prefer to view content without ads.
