We all know YouTube for its free content. But YouTube also has a series of premium shows which we can see after go to YouTube premium mode. To subscribe to this mode, you have to pay $ 11.99/month. YouTube takes an initiative and decides to show some of its premium content for free for his viewers. This video sharing service is accessing many YouTube series like murder mysteries shows. These shows are only available for premium subscription viewers.
YouTube gave this free access to their viewers for a limited period. However, the ending date is not fixed yet. This free service was started on Wednesday, 8 April 2020.
The shows which YouTube is offering free because of lockdown. People around the world are stuck in their houses and they don’t have any special work to do. YouTube’s global head of original content told that:
“A diverse collection is also available in YouTube premium that is now available on YouTube stream for free, we are continued to promote safety and provide our viewer free streaming of their favorite shows for all ages around the globe.”
YouTube also announced its free streaming of YouTube kids and YouTube family original. They will be opening free stream on shows like ‘Fruit Ninja Frenzy Force’, ‘Hyperlinked’, ‘Kings of Atlantis’ and ‘We are Savvy’.
Here’s the full list of YouTube originals that currently available for free to watch:
- Escape the Night
- Matpat’s Game Lab
- Step Up: High Water
- The Sidemen Show
- Me and My Grandma
- F2 Finding Football
- Overthinking with Kat & June

This was the move and probably the best move by YouTube in #StayHome #WithMe campaign, which encourage people to stay home during the quarantine period.
